Unison is a file synchronizer that allows two-way sync. It should be nearly as fast as rsync and perhaps even support file watchers (e.g. inotify) just as well. There are two difficulties: Unison must be installed on client and server...

But which one is easier to learn, test, deploy, debug, and scale? Should you pick Javascript or Scala? The Google v8 engine or the JVM? NPM or Ivy? Grunt or SBT?

"Calendars are a record of interruptions [...] Most people don’t schedule their work. They schedule the interruptions that prevent their work from happening."

Thanks Bill! The recording of the talk should be available in a couple days. I'll post it on G+, Twitter, etc when it's ready.

If you have other feedback on the book, especially anything that could be improved while the book is still in early release, send it to me at feedback@hello-startup.net. And if you've got the time, feel free to post a review in the O'Reilly Store (http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920034360.do) or GoodReads (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24915480-hello-startup-a-programmer-s-guide-to-building-products-technologies).

I just updated the docker-osx-dev project so it no longer needs Vagrant. Just pure rsync + Boot2Docker = much more productive development environment with Docker on OS X. http://www.ybrikman.com/writing/2015/05/19/docker-osx-dev/
