Basecamp is a web-based project management application that enables businesses, freelancers, companies, and corporations to manage projects, and combine customer service. 37signals, a web design company, was co-founded by Jason Fried, Ernest Kim, and Carlos Segura in 1999. Jason Fried is the only remaining founder in the company. Since 2003, the company began shifting their focus from web design to web applications, and in 2014, 37signals was renamed Basecamp. The software application was first launched in 2004 using Ruby on Rails, created by the 37signals programmer, David Heinemeier Hansson, and in 2012 the new Basecamp software was launched. The company is based in Chicago, Illinois and creates other applications including Backpack, Campfire, and Highrise, and provides services, and tools such as The Job Board & Gig Board, Sortfolio, Know Your Company, and We Work Remotely. There are two free web applications available, Ta-Da List, and Writeboard. Basecamp retained their website blog, Signal vs Noise, which was launched in 1999.
