It is only a few short weeks since Twilio, the communications platform developer, had its stock market debut. It’s also a safe bet that in these turbulent times for tech stocks, Twilio spent much time thinking about product and other announcements it could make post-listing to keep the markets positive about its performance.
And so it is doing so today with a seemingly small, but actually pretty cool piece of news for the company. Twilio is rolling out Sync, a tool designed to help keep applications in sync across different devices and sessions. The idea being that developers can build experiences that are consistent across the different devices they wish to support. It also means they can add multi-user collaboration capabilities into their applications without having to think about the pesky details of state.
