The Remote Weekly goes out every Wednesday and brings to you original content, product tips and latest stories around remote working.
Let's understand GitLab's take on remote working together 🤓
You might by now think that we are obsessed with Facebook, what with an update about it each week 😁! But here we go again: Workplace, Facebook's counter to Slack, has hit 3 million paying users. Let's all be happy for Facebook trying to make money without using our data.
We, finally, have the podcast with Darren from Gitlab ready for you! We uncovered a lot of things about Gitlab and Darren also gave us very helpful pointers for building remote teams:
- Promoting remote working is for social good, but it does seem like an important initiative for Gitlab's IPO too
- Collaborative documentation has allowed Gitlab to scale from 3 to 900+ distributed workers
Well, there's a lot more. I know you're busy 🤕. So, I have just brought out the essence of the entire podcast in this blog for you.
As promised a couple of weeks back, we have managed to get an amazing individual from Invision, Scott Hanford, on our next podcast🎙. Watch out for this space to hear what Scott has to say about Invision's practices and his learnings in a 800+ big distributed team!
