Asciidoctor on Slack

Guillaume
Hello everybody,

I've created a Asciidoctor team on slack, let me know if you want to be invite.
https://asciidoctor.slack.com/ and the password is very complicated: "asciidoctor".

Cheers,
Guillaume

Guillaume,

I appreciate you putting in the effort to setup the channel on Slack. My preference, however, is to use the channel on Gitter {1}, which we've been using for a while. I'm willing to reconsider that commitment if there's something that Slack gives us that Gitter doesn't.

Generally, I prefer to use this list or the issue tracker to discuss topics because those mediums encourage asynchronous communication. I've always felt very stressed out by chat (a feeling that Jason Fried captures well in this post {2}).

Putting my opinions aside, if others in the community find Gitter or Slack worthwhile for realtime communication, then I certainly support it being used. I just encourage anyone using realtime chat to bring topics to the list or issue tracker so they are captured for everyone to review.

I'm interested to hear what others think about $subject. Feel free to chime in. Helpful? Not helpful?

Cheers,

-Dan

I didn't know about Gitter.
On the feature support, do you have anything specific in mind ?

An interesting point about Slack, which doesn't seem to exist in Gitter, is the ability to create topic rooms rather putting everything in the main rooms therefore it, of course, has benefits and drawbacks.

True. I kind of see that as useful for scheduled discussions, much in the same way as you grab a meeting room in an office. If the topic room stays open indefinitely, I think it leads to the stress that Jason Fried talks about.

Thanks to @mogztter, the Gitter link is now in the footer of asciidoctor.org (a recent change).

I wasn't aware of that channel at all. Actually, I've been in the #asciidoctor
channel on freenode.net since a while, and it's mostly silent.

If you need the web-based, permanently archived chat, and would like to have
more than one channel, I suggest you to give a look to https://matrix.org.
It's also a way to promote an open source project instead. ;)

I kind of gave up on the IRC channel because it's a) too geeky/low-level for a general audience and b) doesn't support things like highlighted code snippets (as Gitter does) and c) doesn't have integration with GitHub (again, like Gitter does). I generally feel like Gitter is more comfortable and convenient.

I use IRC, but between Slack and Gitter my vote is for Gitter.
