Tuesday Tip: Heard of Slack?

by Kevin Jackman

Tuesday Tip - Heard of Slack? | Network 1 ConsultingWhen I was in college, I started my own website that helped college students do better on exams. Communicating with all of the engineers and people involved to maintain the website was extremely difficult at times, until we got Slack.

Slack is a chat application that sets the bar for UI (User Interface) and attention to detail. The app provides an easy-to-use, well organized platform to help teams communicate efficiently. Slack’s ability to handle linked content makes it an ideal way for engineers and coders to relay information.

“Slack was so much fun, we all switched over from HipChat to Slack by lunch.”


Super Clean!

Embedded video and media players (YouTube, SoundCloud, and Spotify, to name a few) are integrated into the native desktop client, which means you’re not leaving the app every time you click a link.

Much of what Slack has to offer can only be experienced by diving straight into it and giving it a test run. One way to describe it is that you feel comfortable inside the app. Here are some visuals:

Slack isn’t just for engineers and coders, but any team that is looking for a fun communication tool. Even if you’re content with your current chat app, give Slack a try.
