[edit] Slack for discussions/chat

Noisebridge has a team on Slack. We use Slack as a glorified IRC, with multiple rooms to discuss different topics, often separated by working group, such as SecWG or CommunityWorkingGroup.

Slack is accessible on the web, as well as via IRC or XMPP clients.

[edit] How to get on

Unlike Noisebridge's IRC channel, Slack requires an invitation to join. It's recommended that you meet up with someone knowledgeable in the space and talk to them about Slack, or if all else fails, request an invitation on Noisebridge-discuss.
