The Port Workspaces happily uses Slack for connecting our members to each other and between Port locations. You can access it here, by logging in with the same email you used when you connected to signed up to be a member.
Only current, paying Port Members get access and must be approved by a staff member to join. Members post events, classifieds and opportunities to meetup - think of it as a "craigslist for Port Members".
Many members have found jobs, new friends and new stories with each other. Port staff are also here and post reminders about events, exciting announcements, and are available to answer any quick questions you may have. Slack runs in your browser, on your phone (Android, Windows and iPhone) as well as a separate app (on Windows, Linux and Mac).
Remember: Be helpful, kind - and don’t ever be afraid to ask questions or post useful tips and tricks! See if you can unlock a special ‘Lola badge’:)
Here’s a rundown of our current default channels and their purpose.
