I like the channel feature of Slack to give light weight structure to conversations. I’m curious to see Discourse + Gitter compare to Slack. Main concern about Slack is the fact that it’s more of a walled garden. May not work well with the open nature of DGraph.
Cost is also a factor we need to consider. We’ll have to go in for a paid plan at some point, at $8 per user per month ($6.67 if billed annually). This can multiple and grow quite fast as DGraph usage goes up.
Was never a fan of their email invite. Good to know that there’s a one step process now.
