Qcon 2012: Technology is your office

I've attended the "Technology is your office" talk by Horia Dragomir this morning. Most of the session covered good practices to be followed when working with distributed teams of developers. It could be summed up with talk with each other, be smart and create a culture people can share. What I found interesting was the list of tools Horia recommended for distributed teams, so here they are:

"Management" (as in management of time and workload, not resources):

  • Skype
  • Google apps
  • Google docs
  • Basecamp
  • Redmine
  • Pivotaltracker
  • JIRA
  • Rally
Development
  • Mercurial 
  •  Github
  • Yuuguu
  • Cloud9 IDE
  • everytimezone.com
  • TeamViewer
Design
  • Mocking Bird
  • Balsamiq
  • Axxure
  • photoshopetiquette.com 
  • Layer Vault 
Also bonus points for the eastern-european accent joke at the beginning of the talk and neat idea to come up with a catch phrase that sums up your team culture, so it can be propagated more easily.
