Let’s hangout w/ Postgres people on Slack!

While casual discussions with Postgres users at  conference and/or online,  I came across this question for at least 3-4 times;  “Is there a Slack channel for Postgres?”  The answer was “No”.

The idea of bringing up Slack channel was cooking in my mind for a long time but i did not have time to execute it! Now, I have brought up Postgres Team Slack channel in end of Nov 2015 and there are already 100+ users in the channel. You can sign up here http://postgres-slack.herokuapp.com/

Following are the benefits you will get by connecting to Slack channel:

  • If you are using Slack for other communication, it will be easier for you to bring up another company/team on the Slack application.
  • Slack provides integration with number of services i.e Twitter with #postgres and #postgresql hashtags, postgres weekly news and @postgres Twitter handle messages
  • I’m yet to integrate Slack with Postgres gitrepo because I don’t have access to add post-commit hook on the gitrepo. Please email  me @ denish.j.patel@gmail.com, if you can help me to setup integration for Postgres gitrepo . I will provide instruction and web hook url to add into github repo settings.
  • You can access Slack from your mobile devices
  • If you aren’t connected, you still have history of the chat

Hope, this channel will be useful to drive more people to discuss postgres at scale!!

Disclaimer: 

If you are already using Postgres IRC channel, I’m not insisting you to use this new slack channel. I have come up with slack channel for mainly for slack users who are already using it for other purposes! Thanks for understanding.
