Introduction As the world becomes more distributed, the workflow between teams is increasingly complex. A common scenario is of several teams working from different locations, that all need […]
I’ve had a Raspberry Pi lying around the house for a few months now. Every once in a while I’ll take it out and tinker around with it. When Resilio released Resilio Sync, I decided to see what kind of options I had for using the program with my Raspberry Pi. Resilio Sync is awesome. If […]

With Docker and an understanding of the word “container”, you can get a clear picture of how quickly applications can be built and deployed across several architectures with minimal effort. It only made sense […]

We’re thankful for the packages and installation scripts made by our community members (thanks to […]

Danny Davis, the founder of Wonder Giant, shares how his team uses BitTorrent Sync to focus on creating and how they remove technical hurdles like providing everybody access to files and keeping projects secure:
The more you use Sync, the more folders you have in the main list, the more you interact with other users, and the more devices synchronize files.
