Connect with your SQL Community on Slack

Slack is a popular tool for team interaction. To describe it quickly, it's a feature-rich persistent chat room, with threads, multimedia, alerts, etc. There is a web interface, a desktop app, and a mobile app.

In addition to Twitter, which is also extremely popular in the SQL Server community, there are a couple Slacks to be aware of, specifically setup for the SQL Server community:
If you're a user group leader or SQLSat organizer in the PASS US South Central Region (NM, TX, OK, AR, LA):

Of course, Slack is a neat tool, but it cannot replace the in-person networking, training, and professional development that comes from User Group meetings and SQLSaturday events, so don't miss out on the IRL stuff too. :)
