Working from home is getting more important in these days due to lockdowns in many countries. Following free and paid tools helps you to manage your work efficiently at home.

Skype

We all know Skype for conference calls, instant messaging with clients or chat rooms. But if you haven’t been using it for business, you may have missed out on some new functionalities. Record Skype calls to capture key decisions, and use live subtitles to read the words spoken. Easily share presentations, images, or anything on your screen during a call with integrated screen sharing. Access one skype account across multiple devices—even Alexa!

Slack

Slack is the communication tool that brings remote teams together. The platform organizes conversations into channels, which team members can join and leave, as needed, so nobody receives messages or notifications irrelevant to them. Conversations can also be had in threads, which keep messages outside of the main channel so chats don’t get in the way of main topics and projects.

Key features

• Instant messaging: Live communication between every team member for seamless collaboration.

• Statuses: Users can set availability statuses to focus on individual tasks as needed.

• File sharing: Drag-and-drop file sharing for PDFs, images, videos and other common files types.

• Voice & video calls: Voice and video calls directly from within Slack.

• Screen sharing: Allows team members to show their work to others in real-time for stronger collaboration.

Starting a business is always challenging. If that business is making a Game then you will face more additional challenges in a Country like Sri Lanka. First challenge is finding right skill set for the company. Because making a Game requires both design and development skills. Majority of developers in Sri Lanka focus on software development for enterprise applications. But game development requires working knowledge of game engine or any game making tool. If we unable to find right talent then we need to do training to update their skill set.

Next we need artists. For 2D game 2D artist and for 3D game 3D modeling artists.

For making a complete game would require at least one from following disciplines.

Game Developers – Based on the technology or Platform that Game going to publish (IOS, Android, Xbox, PS, Web, Desktop, VR )
