A free lesson in multi-user web apps – Google Docs collaboration

Google has published a 3 part overview of how their Document collaboration framework.

If you’ve ever wrestled with permissive locks and multi-user collaboration (ex: encounter based care) it’s a bit mind blowing. They must have a bucket of patents on this one, but the lessons are free for all to learn and apply …

  1. Working together, even apart
  2. Conflict resolution
  3. Making collaboration fast

If nothing else, these articles do lay out all the issues. They provide a framework for thinking about these problems.

I do love blogs.
