    I’ve seen Slack been mentioned more and more lately as a useful tool for collaboration. It’s mainly developers I’ve seen/heard using it but I hear more testers talking about it too. Have you used it? If so, would you recommend it?

    Or maybe it’s just another tool in a collection of somewhat useful tools?


    I am using slack for almost an year for 3 of my projects. I would certainly recommend it. Even the mobile app is good.


    Slack is a team tool. Similar to MS Teams and Basecamp, Podio and others. It can be used to discuss team activites and discussions – and less email.

    I know other testing forums have slack channels 😉


    I’ve used it and it compares to HipChat and the others that Jesper mentioned.  It integrates well into Jenkins, TeamCity, JIRA, and I’m sure others that I have not worked with. It improved communication in on one of the projects I worked on, which then helped with overall productivity and collaboration on that project. So, in short, I would recommend it or a communication/collaboration tool like it.


    I used HipChat, I use Slack, I love Slack 🙂 Do you know there are at least 2 only-testers Slacks? ministryoftesting.slack.com and testersio.slack.com
