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’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.
