Not even 24 hours after the release of the BitTorrent Sync (BTSync) API, an API that I was eagerly awaiting, we were happy to be able to release arguably the first implementation of said API in the form of the BTSync API Drupal module, and only a few weeks later I personally released a Beta release of the BTSync Field module.
Since then I've been planing on putting together both a text and a video tutorial/demonstration on exactly how one would use the modules, and maybe to touch on future plans I have working with the BTSync API. I was also approached by BitTorrent's Kathie Pham with interest in showcasing the work I have done with the API at Realityloop and in my own time, so even more motivation to get something put together.
I've decided that all the things I would like to demonstrate would be too much for a single post, so instead I will be doing multiple posts over a period of a few weeks (hopefully).

Aegir allows you to deploy and manage many Drupal sites, and can scale across multiple server clusters, it makes it easy to install, upgrade, and backup an entire network of Drupal sites. Aegir is also really good as a local development stack!

Recently Realityloop ran Aegir based deployment training and we had a reasonable proportion of Windows and Linux users at the course, as it turns out only the Mac users didn't run into any problems at all on the day.
Although we had given the windows users instructions for setting up Drush and Acquia Dev Desktop we found out on the day that this is a very poor solution without doing some additional work.
Realityloop was founded in 2002 by Brian Gilbert with Stuart Clark joining in 2011. Using the Drupal content management framework Realityloop build websites, develop custom modules and provide consulting to help you with developing specifications for your project, project management and emergency fixes.
With over 27 years of professional experience building websites and 12 years of Drupal experience Brian and Stuart are both Drupal module contributors, and foster the local Drupal community by organising meet-ups and mentoring workshops monthly.
