Free Source Code Hosting for Git and Mercurial by Bitbucket

frogdog.io loves bitbucket  starstarstarstarstar  30/11/2016

I started using BitBucket when I stopped being a hobbyist using GitHub and started a Digital Agency. It's perfect for a small team just getting off their feet. The free tier plan is unmatched by competitors.

 Pros

Git and Mercurial Support. Issue Tracker is great for client collaboration. Repository WIKIs

 Cons

There is no way to automatically deploy your code in the free tier plan.

If you need an excellent source control mechanism for a small team of developers, bitbucket is unrivaled.

G Suite Reviews
Collaboration apps for teams

frogdog.io loves g-suite  starstarstarstarstar  30/11/2016

Our digital agency has been using g-suite when it was still Google Apps for Work. Having our beloved gmail was one thing, but the collaboration possibilities with google docs, google sheets and just google drive as a file sharing tool are endless. Also hangouts as a messaging platform is brilliant.

 Pros

Familiar interface for Gmail/Drive users. Rarely have to worry about service outage, ITS GOOGLE! You can actually get ahold of a human for customer support.

 Cons

There is a small hurdle with getting clients on board with using google docs and drive when they are stuck in the microsoft sphere, but someone's unwillingness to learn no things isn't a down side to this particular necessarily.

Mailjet Reviews
The All-in-One Solution To Power Your Email

frogdog.io loves mailjet!  starstarstarstarstar  29/11/2016

Mailjet is our go to solution for deploying emails from webforms. We use mailjet on almost every website we do for our clients who can't or won't provide their own SMTP solution.

 Pros

Free! At least for our limited use case. Simple to setup and confirm new domains or addresses. Can manage multiple clients' needs through a single mailjet account.

 Cons

The limitations on the free-tier account are fairly low (200/day), but its free so its hard to complain.

For our use case of simple transactional webform emails its simple yet feature-rich enough to fulfill the needs of our digital agency.

Reasons for switching from other solutions

Simplicity and price.

The main use case

How Mailjet has improved the way our organization functions?

ROI

Impossible to calculate, can't divide by 0. ITS FREE!
