Hello! Several of us encountered this article and we like the idea that Slack can be used as a communication hub for the code4lib community. We know Slack is a lot like IRC, and we have that already. But there seem to be more features in Slack that would help with the conference, like the easy creation and discovery of channels. This is an experiment to see if we can expand the community even more. How? It's is up to you! :-)

Unfortunately, Slack doesn't provide an automated sign up mechanism; people need to be invited to join it. If you're interested in joining, please provide your email through this form ( or fill it out directly below and we will send you the invitation. Thanks.
