  1. In the interview its said this is a slack group and the link back to this page, from that interview, says it’s a Skype group. I was hoping for a slack group. Is there such group and if so how can I join slack group?

    • It is a slack group, I realize that I can’t handle that load on my Skype, you can join to slack group by invite, is this correct email address ? Thanks for warning, I just changed it as slack group too.
