We’re very happy to announce our newest sponsor, Slack, who are providing 75 Ada Lovelace Day Live scholarships for people who would not otherwise be able to attend. We will be opening applications for those tickets in a month or two, and will let you know when that process begins.
If you haven’t heard of Slack, I’ll let them explain their service:
Slack is a messaging app for teams. It brings together your work communications into one place, makes them instantly searchable, and available on any device. It integrates with dozens of popular services such as Twitter, Dropbox, Trello, Asana, Google Docs, JIRA, MailChimp, Stripe, Zendesk and others to help consolidate and make sense of the ever-growing flows of data that confront modern teams. Since launching in February 2014, Slack now has more than 500,000 daily active users across more than 60,000 teams. Based in San Francisco, with an office in Vancouver, Slack has raised $162 million from investors including Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB), Google Ventures, Accel Partners, Andreessen Horowitz and The Social + Capital Partnership.
