Introducing Slackforce: A Salesforce Slack Community

By now most of us are probably well aware of the various communication tools that are available to help you stay connected to your coworkers, especially if you have coworkers spread out around the world. Applications like Slack, Hipchat, and Google Hangouts are all different options that many companies use to promote sharing, collaboration, and transparency.

These tools are great for staying connected to your coworkers. But how do you stay connected to your overall community? The Salesforce community is expanding daily. There are several ways to share knowledge, including but not limited to the Salesforce StackExchange, the Twitter #askforce, and the hundreds of groups on the Salesforce Success Community.

However, there’s a missing gap here. What about real-time interactions?

Hello, Slackforce!

A former colleague of mine started a new community on Slack specifically for Salesforce administrators and developers. In the short amount of time it has been around, we’ve already seen great discussions and collaboration on lightning best practices, studying for certification exams, and more.

Interested? If you want to join us, please reach out by sending an email to me at robert [at] robertwatson.me, or send me a message on Twitter, and I’ll happily give you an invite URL.

Hope to chat with you soon!

  1. Robert,

    I’m glad you joined Slackforce and are able to bring your wonderful Lightning experience and knowledge with you, among many other things. I was excited that Salesforce is doing something different for a conference with the cruise but was disappointed with the sessions listed so far.

    To others reading this, come join us on Slackforce and have great discussions on various Salesforce and other topics!
