Bricklink Summit

Building upon a new vision

by Eunice Kim | 2014-02-11 EST

Greetings to the BrickLink community! Many of you have been anxiously waiting to hear the status update of the new interface. It has been a crucial past couple of months for the various teams preparing BL 2.0 and the staff would like to thank you for your patience as we work towards the release.

The summit team working on ‘idea boards’ at the BrickLink Workshop (January 16, 2014)



In January 2014, we held an intensive, weeklong series of meetings as part of the first-ever BrickLink Global Summit. As the name suggests, the summit involved key team members (introduced here) from all over the world coming together for collaborative thinking and some decision-making. Participants from Seattle, New York, Seoul, Brussels, and areas of California gathered in San Francisco, a city at the heart of the “dot-com” revolution.



Each meeting consisted of a written agenda, lively discussion, and a lead person to facilitate the conversations. At the end of each session, a general consensus was formed for some issues while others were noted aside for further establishment. Around mid-week, a full-day workshop brought the planning, development, and strategy teams together for refining the foundational concepts and executing a plan for the near future of BrickLink. As a result, the progress of the new site has recently transitioned into its redesign and implementation phase. We look forward to your ongoing support, and hope you stay tuned for more news and updates coming your way!
