Btw, we should talk about Gitter vs Slack. I'm curious about what you guys think.

Gitter is more project oriented and it's good for open public groups
Slack is better for private use within a company, as it has more features like file-sharing, better search, etc.

Well so, now slack also has only a one step process to invite people so that they can join easily.
Slack can have multiple channels
Then slack can be integrated with a bunch of stuff
You could have error logs coming to slack
Github issues coming
At my company , it's become more of a one stop place where everything(user activity, analytics, server infotmation) can be quickly viewed

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.
The folks at Free Code Camp don’t seem to be too happy with their experience: http://blog.freecodecamp.com/2015/06/so-yeah-we-tried-slack-and-we-deeply-regretted-it.html
Don’t know if group size is still an issue but this could be deal breaker.

Gitten doesn’t seem to have any max room size

Yes, I guess channels + integrations are some good slack features.
Which might help segregate discussions in a more meaningful manner
though unless we need them, there might not be much to gain from moving.

8 per user per month is way too much.
I wonder how much is Golang paying. They also have a Slack community.
Read the article, doesn't sound good at all. I wonder is Hipchat is up to task on this..
