Background
Collab started as a bachelor thesis project at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. Already in the beginning the students, studying Software Engineering, realized that this project had more potential than just being a bachelor thesis project. To leverage this projects full potential we decided to add this project to Codeplex and invite other developers to contribute to this remote collaboration project.
