About This Class

heard a lot about slack?

need to have a quick primer to get you up to speed in why people are raving about it so much then this is the basic slack primer for you. rapid talking head videos showing you around the slack platform and teaching you all you need to know about how powerful this communications platform is.

feel free to ask questions, request additional videos - i'm here to help you make a decision before jumping into a paid subscription with slack.

you should be able to get through the lectures rapidly as they are talking head videos with screencast style cutaways to me actually using slack in a real world situation.

Very thorough and current uses. I appreciate the overview as the program seems straight forward, but for a newbie, it can be a little overwhelming.

------ my backstory ------

currently saving to buy a laser cutter for co-working and co-creation pod called apiary and get mobile driving a vw t5 transporter across the uk and europe

sold my domain name me.dm to evan williams from twitter (they were building medium) for five figures. a great year!

assisted a town called ‘phil campbell’ in alabama (bbc news) which was a life changing event for me in terms of what i wanted to do with the rest of my life

helped lifecast from sleepydog get into the first apple app store to be part of the first 500 apps ever launched worldwide – proud social media moment.

bought a domain, me.dm (me-d-em) and ever since I’ve bartered my time as a transmedia digital artist in the social media realm. a brand advocate for word of mouth agencies from behind the lens of a mobile phone or camera.

during regularly drinking sessions at the abbey in burton on Trent I ended up on the team time episode of history hunters which is now unfortunately on youtube
