Working in a technical team distributed across multiple time zones makes it difficult to collaborate
and keep everyone on the same page. I’ve used various communications tools to try and help with this
and today the team I am working with started to look at Slack. Slack seems ideal for our needs as it

it has a free usage model with limitations which won’t effect our working and if we grow we can extend
to a paid license.
