The latest version of Async: 1.1.9 launch

Async communication for software engineers

  • Tightly integrated with GitHub, Async helps software engineers on your team to effortlessly track work (with Hills) and have focused conversations around work (with Discussions).
  • Async provides you with simple concepts, such as Hills and Discussions, to stay sane and productive while building software of any complexity. See Features.

Built by software engineers for software engineers.

  • We built Async because we badly needed a better tool to communicate as a team while building software. We've built over a dozen software projects using Async.
  • Async provides you with Repo Hills to seamlessly track per-issue and per-repo progress. Repo Hills are an alternative to waterfall and agile principles.
  • Unlike Slack and other chat applications, Async encourages long-form, thread-based, asynchronous Discussions that enable your engineering team to achieve deep and focused work.
  • Besides focused Discussions and Repo Hills, Async provides you with Standups - an easy way to plan and report daily tasks for you and your teammates.
  • Finally, since Discussions are short and transient, Async offers you Knowledge - a collaborative document intended for storing and sharing important, persistent information within your team.
  • You own your data. It's safe with us.

  • GitHub is the single source of truth for data.
  • Async has no access to your actual code on GitHub.
  • We respect your privacy and will never sell your personal information to third parties.
  • We won't share your data with law enforcement unless a court order requires us to.
  • All data transmitted from our servers to your browser is encrypted via SSL/TLS. Database backups and AWS S3 buckets are also encrypted.
  • You own your data. You can export all of your data in JSON format and delete your account at any time.
  • When you delete your account, all of your data will be permanently deleted from our databases within a few seconds.
  • Any data that you delete permanently while using Async is permanently deleted from our database.

  • Async is built by a small, remote, and self-funded team.

  • Our team has built Builder Book, SaaS boilerplate, and Async.
