Team Collaboration (Mattermost)


With the world moving more and more into remote working, the team collaboration platforms are becoming highly-important. There are some well-known tools out there but they come with the downfalls of many centralized solutions – lack of security and privacy, and operating in closed source environments.

Open Source Solution: Mattermost

Mattermost is an widely-trusted open source and self-hosted Slack alternative – a messaging platform that enables secure team collaboration.
