How to Slack with SoT

We’ve set up a Slack channel for real-time chat amongst participants in our 2020 bootcamps.  Here’s a few tips for users:

What is Slack?

Slack is a real-time message forum that we’re using for communication before/during & after our Bootcamps.  Our Slack is for students who are registered for Summer of Tech AND attending our Bootcamps to get support with bootcamp topics.

Bootcamp presenters have the OPTION of being in Slack. They may choose not to use it, and that’s ok 🙂 SoT mentors can choose to be in Slack to help out with technical questions about their topic areas.

How do I join?

Our bootcamp presenters have the option of using Slack for real-time communication, resource-sharing, Q&A’s for their bootcamps.  If they choose to use it, we will make sure that all students who have registered to attend the bootcamp are emailed an invitation to join Slack before the bootcamp starts.

Look out for the invitation in your email inbox.  That would be the email inbox that is the one you’ve used for your Summer of Tech registration 😉

If you haven’t received an invitation, get in touch with the SoT team via Intercom (send a DM when you’re logged into our platform) or via our contact form.

How does it work?

When you receive the invitation, follow the link to join Slack, then jump into the “channel” which has been set up for the bootcamp you’re attending.

During (and sometimes after) the bootcamp, students can ask questions, and presenters can share resources & tips related to the bootcamp topic.
