Do You Need to Edit Code With Team Members in Real-Time? Try Stypi

In my operating systems class, we have 8 projects for the semester, all of which must be completed in groups of 2. These labs are time-consuming to say the least, and the last thing any of us students want to do is rot together for 30 hours sitting in the university computer labs for each project.
