Status Updates By Team





Hi, we’re about 30 people you probably didn’t know about before. We work on things like Sync (including the spiffy Android Sync being shown at MWC), as well as a number of other awesome, scalable infrastructure stuff, so you don’t have to.

We’re a friendly bunch, and would love to hear from you on services-dev@ or via IRC on #services-dev.
