Release of the unofficial MTProto proxy in Python, features protocol

 
Recently, Telegram developers have laid out the source of a proxy server that uses the MTProto protocol. On the hub came out articles about features of its assembly and repackaging the container docker with it . The official proxy server, written in C, surprises with the amount of code - about 23 thousand lines.

History has the property of repeating itself. Now the role of America Online is played by the main messengers: ...

Experience of transition to the Atlassian Stride (from Stradai)

Atlassian Stride was launched in November 201? as a replacement for cloud-based HipChat. De facto, the main competitor, of course, is Slack. I will try to compare Stride with Slack, and Telegram from the textual correspondence.
