Sharing ideas, experiences, and best practices for project management.
Helping other Drupallers to become more effective and efficient in projects they manage.
Join us on IRC in the #drupal-pm channel!
I am new the PM game for Drupal (though not to PMing). I joined a boutique Drupal shop and my new employee provided me with a Mac. This is a new experience for me (never used a Mac at work before) and I was hoping folks could share what their preferred IRC client for Mac is.
Thanks for the suggestions!
sorry if this question has been already asked, I did try to search/google it before.
I'd love to hear from drupal members who have used both systems, what system you choose in the end and why?
For the moment I can't decide because they both are so similar.
Maybe somebody could share their experience with these two systems?
Thank you for your time!
