Using Slack and Bitbucket to work together while apart

Room: 
Recital Hall

Is your company interested in telecommuting, but is yet to take the plunge? Are you already trying it out, but want to know more?

Mediacurrent is an almost entirely remote company - a handful work in the office in Alpharetta, Georgia, but the rest of us work across the country in four time zones, and in over a dozen states. Our main tools for accomplishing this? Slack, Bitbucket, and some unique cultural tweaks.

From inline gifs to automated replies to certain events, I'll talk about how we use these tools to communicate and collaborate from hundreds or even thousands of miles away.
