We’d been using BitTorrent Sync to share some folders between our team members that were too large for the usual cloud services.  The problem was that the folks there decided to go all commercial and make it quite expensive to use for a small development team.  They also changed the name & branding to Resilio.

We needed to find an alternative and a little searching lead to SyncThing.  This is a similar solution to what BitTorrent Sync used to be, and while it’s a lot less polished, it’s free, open source and multi-platform.

We made the switch and are pretty content with the results.  Check it out.

Visual Studio for Mac

Microsoft recently released a trial version of Visual Studio for Mac.  While not exactly Visual Studio, it does seem interesting.  It’s built on Xamarin Studio, a product purchased by MSFT, and while it has some teething issues we’re all hoping for improvements to make it as useful as Visual Studio is on Windows.

We’re excited to announce our collaboration on the BlinkGigs project. We will be providing the development support for this exciting project. You can read more about it at
