written by Geoff Bowers on Tuesday, 2 August, 2011 @ 04:08 PM

We love Dropbox at Daemon. We've finally got rid of the file server in the corner and rely on the Dropbox service for all our internal storage. recently we've started building web applications that can be dynamically updated by just copying files into a Dropbox share -- clients love it! Key to this is getting Dropbox set up as a service on your server.

written by Geoff Bowers on Friday, 8 July, 2011 @ 12:09 PM

I tried SpiderOak for a while last year. While there's a lot of overlap, Dropbox and SpiderOak are different in nature: Dropbox is a simple-to-use file sync service with limited online backup features, while SpiderOak is a complete online backup service with harder-to-use file sync features.

There's a difference to Git and Mercurial (Hg) when it comes to training developers experienced in Subversion (SVN).

However the tools are used in different ways depending on the system being taught.
