Socialising with Slack

Posted by QED at 10:23am on October 2nd 2018

For the past two years, QED has had its own Slack team, to offer another way of chatting to fellow QED attendees, making plans and sharing your thoughts about the event.

Slack is a real-time messaging and team collaboration tool, launched in 2013. Though initially designed to allow teams within a company to collaborate, it has proven increasingly popular with conferences as a way for attendees to communicate, socialise, and self-organise by related interests.

Slack is free to join (and optional, of course), and since its introduction it’s helped improve the QED experience for those using it. You can sign up for our Slack team by requesting an invitation at qedcon.herokuapp.com.

Once you’ve signed up through your browser, you can download Slack for iOS and Android through their respective App Stores, or you can just use your web browser by visiting qedcon.slack.com.
