At RunAs, we love Slack and share all things with. Here some channel we use on our daily basis

Our Top 5

  1. eng-chat: private team channel to say “Good morning!” or “I’m out for lunch” or “I’m out for the day, have a great weekend!”
  2. kudos: allows the whole team to celebrate wins and recognize good work
  3. bar: public channel and funny is pretty self-explanatory
  4. general: all company or team announcements
  5. article: a good place to let people push various blog post or articles. Pretty close to a Guild
