Lots of great advice in this interview, but would love to hear folks current opinions on the team-collaborate tools that they use.
“Your company all works remotely, correct? What tools or tricks do you use to effectively communicate as a team while making apps?”
It has taken many years to get the systems working to a point where we are more effective than an under one roof team. While we use many tools in order to get the job done some stand out more than others:
We use Adium/iChat/Messages for one on one communication, as well as email.
For group collaboration we use 37 Signal’s Campfire with the Mac OS X Propane written by our own Trevor Squires.
Freshbooks is used for tracking time and budgets as well as payroll and invoicing.
