What Is Slack?
Slack is a team communication app at its core. What at first glance appears to be a simple chat room, or chat app is really much more more. From adding integration with other apps, to making special channel;s to discuss items that might not need to be in the general chat, Slack is your app.
Slack has the ability to let is users add channels to their account. Those channels are basically smaller chat rooms that can be used to discuss certain parts of a project, or a channel that can alert you when GitHub is updated. All in all it is a very powerful tool that lets DevOps and Engineers use the same application in different ways.
