    A co-worker of mine wrote up about how we use Slack at our company. After using Skype, Hangouts and countless email threads for team / client communication we tried Slack and haven't turned back since. In all honesty, like any other groups chat platform is can get quite noisy very fast; which is where channels come in very handy.

    We use Slack channels for team wide announcements, non-work topics, article sharing and stupid gifs, with group chats for projects and work related conversations. Having the right channels setup will help channel the noise, allowing each person to only subscribe to conversations that they might care about and not having thousands of notifications every day.

    The channels we typically use are: - unimportant-things

    • general

    • sports

    • sketch tips

    • music

    • prototyping-tools

    • podcasts

    • gaming
