To keep in contact between the face-to-face meetings at our monthly Meetups and WordCamp Vienna we use the real-time chat platform Slack, just like the global WordPress community.

The overall process is basically a 3-step procedure:

  1. Get yourself an account on wordpress.org.
  2. Register for the global Slack channel. (This is needed for Step 3)
  3. Register for the Austrian Slack Channel.

Please follow this detailed instructions:

After you have done that you can register with [wordpress.org-username]@chat.wordpress.org (so for example if your username would be “matt” you’d register with “matt@chat.wordpress.org” at our Slack team here:

We are aware that this process is a bit complex, so if you have any issues feel free to contact us and we’ll try to get back to you as soon as possivble.
