Baton Rouge Slack

The Baton Rouge Slack is community for Baton Rouge area developers, designers, marketers, business people, hobbyists, students, entrepreneurs, and other professionals involved in technology.

How do I join?

The Slack is invitation-only, but invitations are freely granted. You can request one by filling out this form:

Who's invited?

Anybody who lives in Baton Rouge or the surrounding area and has an interest in technology is welcome to join! You don't need to be a developer, designer, or even work in the tech industry; you just need to bring your interest and your passions.

I want to bring a friend!

If you know someone who wants to join the Slack, please direct them to this page and ask them to submit the invite request; it's the fastest way to get them their invite!

Channels

Slack chat spaces are divided into rooms called "channels", and we have a few. There are three you'll be in by default:

  • #announcements: occasional announcements
  • #chat: random chat
  • #introductions: introduce yourself!

All rooms are opt-in except #announcements, which is why it is kept low-volume.

What are the rules?

We have a simple Code of Conduct that is based on the same Code of Conduct used by projects such as AngularJS, The .NET Foundation, Rails, and Swift.

Community Guidelines
