"Best conversation tool for github collaboration"

What do you like best?

- It segregates and groups the people working on the same project may it be open source or private into one chat room

- You can easily reach out maintainers of the project without have to open an issue on github.

- Markdown integration in the chat window

- Realtime notification on web

- Steamlines whole process of projects. As it is integrated with github. The chat window also shows project activity. Thereby whole team gets notified when an issue, pull request or commit is made.

- Links of issues, pull request gets can be referenced easily without have to pull out complete url.

What do you dislike?

- Desktop app is slow and sometimes laggy.

- Sometimes push notification on mobile app doesnt work quite well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its a great tool out there not just for public repository discussions but private too. Also its cost for private repository is also a great deal. If you have open source projects this can be a great tool for getting in touch with the contributors who are contributing to you projects. It has all the features which if github had would make facebook for projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Reaching out to open source contributors to notify and discuss.

- It acts as a customer support for our projects.

- Instead of people opening issues for question they directly reach out to us via gitter, thereby maintaining privacy and at the same time support.

- Keep all my developers and designers in loop with the project git status.

"Unlimited Community Interface"

What do you like best?

It's pretty much a free public service that allows unlimited users, territories, and Integration For Private users within a growing connecting community to communicate with one another.

What do you dislike?

It's just another social media experiment to attempt to promote and grow yet another company that is trying to compete with the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, and YouTube. Just like Foursquare and many others. They are wasting time and money trying to compete with social media giants to basically create the ultimate interface of communication through the web. To me it feels like an obsolete task if someone else has already done and had it already out years before and what your trying so hard to build is an obsolete task that could of went into something more valuable like uncharted exploration into the unknown.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a waste of time use what is available to you like google+ or Facebook they all do the same thing so it seems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It offered me nothing that no other well known social media platform already had available way before the time and creation of this company.

What Team Collaboration solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Make Collaboration a Breeze"

What do you like best?

This app makes it extremely easy to collaborate with others. Participation in a chat is made extremely simple and the way the conversation appears is easy to follow, especially with the realtime notifications.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, the product has a slow reaction time or appears to be lagging. This is common with any web-based program, but it can become irritating when trying to collaborate with others who are not in the same office.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool if your company is using Github. Talking with those involved is made simple and easy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This product makes it easy to keep in touch with different groups throughout the office. When all of us are working on several projects, we can have different chats for each project. It's been extremely helpful.

"Easy to use and easy to collaborate "

What do you like best?

There's something kinda fun about an old school chat room and Gitter makes me think of one. I love bring able to have my project groups and easily keep up with and participate in the conversations.

What do you dislike?

I dime see this as a problem, but some of the purpose of Slack, which is pervasive in the industry, is also the purpose of Gitter. Redundancy isn't always bad, at least not in engineering.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're using Github it's really just super simple to create a group and get started with your colleagues. Do it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping my project groups in touch and able to share ideas in a way that is organized yet not struggling has been great. Achieving a comfort level to actually share information has been a godsend.

"GITTER the best alternative to be connected with our development team."

What do you like best?

What I love is that it allows me to be in touch with my development team in real time. Also like to be multiplatform. I like it to be free, that allows those who are beginning in the world of programming to develop their project with more support without having to pay.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like is that if I do not pay for privacy, everyone can see the public conversations. The privacy of the conversations is very important since the theft of information is latent.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendation is to use it and not be disappointed, it is an excellent tool to stay connected with your development team. I highly recommend it, there is nothing better than GITTER to be in line with any problem that occurs during the development of the software, they will not be sorry.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Deliveries to our customers are much faster than before because the solution to the problems that arise is resolved quickly thanks to GITTER.

"I used it in early days, but now very rare"

What do you like best?

Talking to other developers is fun, also having some conversations on a library/package, get thoughts, new ideas is very helpful, sometimes you cannot solve your problem, you get a help from gitter chat, it's very friendly product indeed, i like it in most cases, but currently im not using it at all.

What do you dislike?

Time difference, all people around the world work at different time zones, and that's a hard problem, when you are in rush and want to ask a small question and want answer, chat is AFK, nobody active, although there is a lot of users, it's like IRC chat, you are working, everyone is sleeping, and vise versa, that's indeed probably biggest issue for me, sure it cannot be solved simply, it's something like impossible to solve, but being a chat platform and behaving like a forum is not applicable for me

Recommendations to others considering the product

I like when it comes to live chatting,

but i don't like when it becomes a forum alike thing.

The time zone difference is a big problem for me, i hope this will be somehow fixed in the future. Hope there will be better way to talk to creators directly

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

well it's useful to talk to contributors of package directly rather than ask question in github issues, and theoricaly you get faster answer for your question. Or you can talk to creator of package directly, get some help, or request a feature, talk about it in live chat, it's very helpful service tho

"Review of Gitter Messenger"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy the ability to create and join different communities, it gives you infinitely more resources to ask and answer questions.

What do you dislike?

I think the logging of all messages is a two edged sword, it's great for coming back to a conversation where you learned something but can also be embarrassing for less mature users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Signing up using your Github account is fast and easy, Gitter is free, and there are a ton of knowledgeable communities, so just give it a try!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Gitter as a platform similar to Discord and Slack, it's another avenue where I can ask and answer questions I have about programming or design.

"The best tool for opensource software"

What do you like best?

It's a convenient app to reach developers in OSS without annoying people with issues on github and so on.

What do you dislike?

It's really poorly implemented. There is non cache of contents and every time you enter a room, you have to wait for the full history

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I usually ask OSS developers for support or bugfix. It's really useful to have an answer in a fast way

"Great for developer teams. Built by Github users for Github Users."

What do you like best?

Simple UI, Easy to understand, Quick setup, Open source.

Rather good mobile app.

What do you dislike?

Somewhat limited on use. Not as powerful as some other options (such as slack.)

Give it a go.

Not much use unless you're developing on Github though, or if you're wanting to chat about a github project such as /freecodecamp

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developer chat for teams to work on projects together
