Mike Bartlett worked at Skype in various product related positions for nearly 7 years. In 2012 he left Skype and took some time off to create Gitter, a free communication platform for developers and users of GitHub.
Gitter’s integration with with GitHub makes setting up a chat room with other developers easy. This gives developers the opportunity to post and solve problems from other users all over the platform. For more private communication, confidential rooms can be set up for teams and businesses. Gitter is integrated with Trello, Jenkins, Travis CI, Heroku, Bitbucket, HuBoard, Logentries, Pagerduty and Sprint.ly.
