Summary: Lets install our collaboration tools. 

Due: various see text below for details.


  1. Install Slack: here is the website It is available for Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux (ubuntu[mint] and fedora). The free plan should be good enough for us. I doubt any group will get past 10,000 messages
  2. Decide who in your group will be the group leader for this purpose.
    1. the group leader will create a project and invite the other two members of the group.
    2. The group leader should then invite me. (this should be done by Friday night)
  3. Someone (not the group leader) integrate github to the project. announce in the #general channel which channel has the github integration.
  4. Someone, (not the group leader) should follow These directions and integrate slack with trello ob one channel on your project. Announce on the general channel where that is.
  5. Everyone should sign up for a Trello account.
  6. Every group member should use slack's integration with other apps to select one app from the extensive list and integrate it with your team's project. Explain why you chose that one and not alternatives in your team's general chat channel. (this is due by Monday Feb 20 at 9pm.
