Slack is an instant messaging client with mobile apps for iOS and Android, desktop apps, and browser apps. It allows group conversations in channels along with private messages. It’s been labeled as a possible “Future of Conferences”. If you are interested in joining, you can visit to sign up (your email address is only used to send you an invitation). Once you are signed up, install the mobile apps or visit to start chatting!

If you are presenting, let us know in #_channelrequest with a channel name and we’ll create a channel for you.
