> Slack is very similar in its interface to IRC, but has a very
> nice "modern" interface, accessible via web browser,
> OS X application, IOS/Android app.
> Slack has an API and many people are integrating applications with it
> such as Google Hangouts, Dropbox, and even Jenkins itself:
> https://slack.com/integrations/
> In terms of pricing, I think that the Jenkins project can get
> by with the free pricing tier:
> http://slack.com/pricing/
> which offers unlimited users, 5 integrations, and 10,000 searchable
> messages.
> A number of open source projects such as Socket.IO, Wordpress,
> EmberJS have set up Slack communities, and have moved away
> from freenode IRC and are generally happy with it:

> I'm not suggesting that Jenkins CI project gets rid of IRC,
> but since it is possible to use Slack for free, why not
> set it up, and see how it goes for end users?
