Brief introduction

The Totalism Co-op is a general labour association, operating since 2016. We specialize in information technology, organisation processes, and applied research.

Cooperations are established on top of common-goals alignment. Thus, they can be better - cheaper, faster, more exciting, and more cheerful. This in turn changes the labour's accessibility and inclusivity, on both ends.

The broader Co-op's manifesto can be found here:
    → 🔗coop-manifesto.






Information Technologies


    ( BRIEF )

Software and Information Technology R&D:

    * opensource development + support:
        also see → 🔗workflow

    * openhardware research and "free industry" production:
        also see → 🔗openhardware

    * hardware platform resale & configuration:
        also see → 🔗laptop

    * develop for bounties

    * research and overviews

    * teaching and workshops:
        also see → 🔗teaching

    * system administration, dev-ops and hosting infrastructure
        ->>> #servercoop

    * fixing computers

    * [..]


Other technology:

    * events support (audio, video, network, workflow)

    * [...]



    * Quick transform dive [onsite, 2w/100h]

Every contemporary organisation, or individual, can benefit from improving their organisational processes, connected to the way they handle data. Tproduction, collaborationauthoring, collaborating, data, search & information retrieval, conceptual models, representation, machine learning, etc.

In 2 weeks... :
    * We figure out the main organisational and technical problems, and fully document them
    * Quick Fix:
        We rapidly document, specify, develop and deploy a solution to a painful problem
    * We re-align and re-sketch the internal research & development into an agreed, innovative direction
    * We concord a longer term smart data strategy


___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  

Example outcomes

#1 (Belgian software/media company):
    * fixed a broken Solr search engine instance
    * rethought their database model (conceptual clearing for future proofing, performance improvements)
    * made plans for graph database and "extended use of data"
    * made foundation for reinforced learning on example that influence search weights
    * made foundation for statistical test infrastructure
    * written up single page executive report for future tech (can be used when looking for VC)

#2 (UK open hardware project):
    * base structure and vision-setting for this "zero stage" (🔗non-shitty) startup
    * for results, see 🔗voxelcraft ###RECOVER



    * Consult / outsource research [offsite, 4w/50h]

With FLOSS alternatives.

Also:
    * support
    * teaching
    * custom directioned development
    * [...]



    * Development projects

        * directioned existing product improvement

    software, design, ...

Types:
    * micro-projects, <10h
    * mini-projects, <50h 
    * larger projects, ~500h:
        always break down in 100h max deliverables!
