Introducing Our New Guide: How to Build Your Open Source Productivity Stack

It’s no secret that open source software is an important part of many development teams’ daily workflows. But does that include productivity tools?

Introducing Voice Calling and Screen Sharing in Channels

Coming from a traditional office environment, the ways of working tend to approximate in-person rituals. As the common adage goes “we want what we can’t have.” When you’re in the office together, the hierarchy of communication usually goes something like this: in-person > video > audio > text. But when you take a team and spread them across the world, a preference for synchronous, in-person conversations can drastically slow down collaboration.
