The initiative, implemented under the president’s executive authority, promises to stop deportation and provide work permits for nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants.

10+ Collaboration Tools for Designers and Developers

Web designers and web developers are no strangers to collaborative projects. Perhaps you work in a small or medium-sized company, and have had enough of checking your inbox for new messages from your co-workers from the umpteenth meeting you have had in the first week of the month.

Rather than fall back on email and less-than-productive meetings, try out some of the online solutions that exist in the form of collaboration tools. These solutions are perfect for professional creatives, since they allow you to focus on doing a great job, rather than waste too much time on trying to keep the project wheels rolling.

Here are 14 collaboration tools designers and developers should try out, if they haven’t already given them a run.


Paymo is an online project management tool that offers ‘digestible’ project templates, and proposes a clean way to take care of time tracking, task management, expense estimation, file sharing, interaction among team members, and invoicing.

What is more, Mural.ly also includes a voting feature, handy for knowing which side your team mates are leaning towards. [Visit the site]


Quick, what are the things you hate most about working in a team? If you say meetings, mishandled budgets and shoddy work, then you shoud take a look at Teamfocus. It’s allergic to emails, something most of us would love to claim to have. But jokes aside, Teamfocus helps you stay connected with your peers, meet your deadlines and work better as a team, while getting the job done efficiently. [Visit the site]

Last anyone has heard, Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle was attached to direct. The role of Jobs, which had previously been offered to Leonardo DiCaprio and…
