We're excited to launch a public chat room for tech professionals in Central Oregon. If you haven't heard of Slack, it's similar to IRC but much more user friendly.

When evaluating different options for discussion tools, we appreciated what Slack had to offer, including:

  • Open for everyone
  • Friendly user interface
  • Easy asynchronous conversation
  • iOS and Android apps
  • Powerful customization abilities
  • Excellent search

We prefer to keep the topics tech-related, such as:

  • Technical questions
  • Tech jobs (freelance or otherwise)
  • Event related goings-on

If you’re interested, we ask that you apply for access here: http://bendtech.com/chat

Also be sure to download the mobile apps for iOS and Android – it will ping you when there are new conversations:

We look forward to seeing you in there!
