never used slack, indifferent.
Jamie Clarke
@jamie94bc
from what i've read, slack isn't great for open source
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
is this the only chat room you use?
@jamie94bc why is that?
we can have a bunch of people in a room and it’s free, but it just sucks because the signup process is more involved than just clicking to join a room.
that is what we would use.
Sander Rijken
@srijken
is that the thing that everyone runs on herokuapp?
Jamie Clarke
@jamie94bc
i think it was related to pricing
what's wrong with gitter?
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
yeah, can run it on azure too.
Sander Rijken
@srijken
that was gonna be my next question.. what’s wrong with gitter
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
@jamie94bc my problem is that I already have 2 slack accounts so personally I have to switch between gitter and 2 slack accounts… but more importantly… the notifications in gitter aren’t that great. Seems really easy to miss notifications.
slack is just a lot more polished all around too
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
they don’t like it cause it’s an extra app
lol
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
just the sucky signup part that is the negative
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
slack is nicer but signup sucks
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
do that
it’s not horrible
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
but I think that makes it harder for people to just jump in and it’s nice that you can embed gitter live chat in any html page
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
well we aren’t doing that… so don’t think that is important for us.
Sander Rijken
@srijken
just curious.. are you running the free slack?
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
so would we create a new exceptionless org?
on slack
we have paid slack
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
if people are against it or just don’t want to change then I don’t want to do it.
Sander Rijken
@srijken
I like the more polishedness of it
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
I think we would rename the code smith one to exceptionless
Sander Rijken
@srijken
the paid/not paid stuff is also something to consider right?
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
we are already paying for it and it’s cheap
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
yeah
Sander Rijken
@srijken
isn’t it per user?
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
not worried about that part.
no, they allow people to be added
that you don’t pay for.
Sander Rijken
@srijken
oh?
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
if your in one channel it’s free
Sander Rijken
@srijken
“guest users”?
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
yeah
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
yeah
Sander Rijken
@srijken
hm
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
how about I setup the invite thing and we give it a quick try? if you guys don’t like it then we just ditch it.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
sure
Frank Ebersoll
@frankebersoll
go for it :-)
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
I personally don't like Gitter because notifications stink and Slack's UI and usability is WAY more polished. Plus they have nice apps for all major platforms.
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
alright, lets just give it a try
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
Happy day!
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
guess if we all like the change I’ll stay in gitter and try and get people to move long term
