Prep Project 2.5: install Slack Morning Version

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. (It doesn't have to be the same as the group lead later on)
    1. the group leader will create a project and invite the other two (or three in the case of groups 1 &2) members of the group.
    2. The group leader should then invite me. (this should be done by Friday night before spring break)
  3. Someone (not the group leader) integrate github to the project. announce in the #general channel which channel has the github integration.
  4. Someone else, (not the group leader or the person above) should follow These directions and integrate slack with trello on one channel on your project. Announce on the general channel where that is.
  5. For groups 1&2 only, your fourth person should integrate code climate 
  6. Everyone should sign up for a Trello account.
  7. 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 after break March 13 at 9pm.
