We have an exciting virtual event planned with a bunch of exceptional people. The highlight of the event will be two panel discussions.
During the first panel discussion, we'll host organizers and founders from various European initiatives tackling COVID19. We have panelists from EUvsVirus, The Global Hack, and Hacking COVID-19. We will discuss the general motivation behind getting involved and what were initial organizational challenges. Additionally, we'll touch upon the dilemma of choosing the tools, managing an ever-increasing Slack workspace with setting up onboarding processes, dealing with workflows, and similar. We are eager to hear where was Slack most useful, and what are the expected outcomes of the hackathons and the path forward.
The second-panel discussion will involve people from the Slack Platform team discussing the transition to remote work within Slack, what role do communication platforms play in times like these in pandemics. We will also touch upon the challenge of managing increased interest in Slack during the outbreaks and how Slack handled it.
We look forward to welcoming you to the first joint Paneuropean virtual SPC event!

I have worked remotely and in tech since before there was Slack. Or Skype. Or ICQ.
