It is nonetheless just a few days till the 12 months is formally over, however for us, it is time to name it to an in depth. Let’s have a look again on the previous 12 months and analyze its ups and downs collectively.
Looking back, 2017 has been a tougher 12 months than we might have imagined. It was a 12 months of change, with some outdated faces leaving and a few new faces becoming a member of for the experience. We transitioned from having a number of editorial groups divided by nation to a world editorial crew – which could sound straightforward on paper, however in actuality it was rather more difficult – and on prime of that, we tried our hand at just a few new bold targets, which you’ll have the prospect to listen to extra about within the new 12 months.
The principle aims we set for 2017 are:
- New video codecs and extra movies.
- Higher high quality content material.
- A group weblog with content material written by readers.
- Strengthening the group.
We labored on these 4 targets all 12 months with our whole, undivided worldwide crew which contains our six totally different domains. However, we now have to confess, it wasn’t all easy crusing.
I might give examples for every of the factors above as an example why it wasn’t so easy. For instance, with creating extra movies, issues are made difficult if you find yourself a world crew creating movies in six languages. A plan for publishing effectively needed to be made via trial and error. When you may suppose livestreams might make issues simpler, there are different technical necessities and people in entrance of the digital camera need to really feel comfy.
However, we’re heading in the right direction, testing livestreams out on a number of domains already. We’re gaining expertise behind the digital camera and in entrance of it so as to carry weekly English language livestreams to AndroidPIT.com quickly.
Higher and extra numerous content material on AndroidPIT
There are conflicting opinions on article updates amongst our readers. Some common readers, who could go to the web site a number of occasions per day, may be uninterested in updates to current articles, whereas others could discover it useful to have complete, up-to-date info in a single article. Our editorial crew has discussions about tips on how to strike the proper steadiness usually.
Personally, I consider we now have been profitable in our purpose of publishing higher high quality and extra numerous content material over the previous 12 months. One of the best instance of this has been the results of our varied Skilled Teams, which have shaped round matters like AR/VR, sensible residence and wearables.
Strengthen group and group blogs on AndroidPIT
For us at AndroidPIT, the group has at all times been the spine of our web site. Nonetheless, in the previous few years we now have put it apart a bit. We had deliberate to work on it this 12 months however we could not handle it in addition to we wish to have attributable to some initiatives which required our assets and a focus. Nonetheless, we’re working exhausting to make communication higher between moderators, directors, the product crew and the entire crew typically to carry out the very best for our group.
We’ve not forgotten about our group. By way of our contacts, we now have launched campaigns with companions like Devolo, Asus, OnePlus and Huawei, even when not within the English web site for now. We nonetheless have loads of room to make our group even stronger.
Conclusion: It has been an thrilling 2017, and an much more exiting 2018 is on the horizon.
I would like to shut the article by saying goodbye to 2017 and hi there to 2018, and by thanking you for sticking with us on this journey as we evolve to higher cowl the tech world sooner or later.
