Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Slack team for Apache NiFi
Date Mon, 10 Oct 2016 18:28:16 GMT
Good evening,

I am a new member to the community so I do not know much about the current
needs.
Still I'd like to point at gitter.im which has an open-sourced IRC bridge (
https://irc.gitter.im/) for the heavy IRC users.
Overall imho a good Slack alternative, its aim is to provide chatrooms for
developers.

Best
John
