We’re launching this public Slack group to continue and extend the conversations started during Philly Tech Week 2015 presented by Comcast.

We’re also using it to bring together the four core geographies that covers outside of Philly, sharing a wider focus on innovation communities around the country. We want to do a better job connecting these communities and think this is a fun way to do it, while sharing best practices, meeting smart people and getting to know what makes tech communities tick.

If you don’t know Slack, it’s a chat room for communities that has really exploded in the startup/tech world: companies use it to communicate, and some community-building organizations, like, are beginning to use the platform to bring people together.

Here are a few ways you can connect with community members in the #philly-tech-week channel:

  • Share your experience at Philly Tech Week with the community by posting images from the events you attend.
  • Share interesting tidbits from the sessions you attend for others who were booked up and couldn’t make it.
  • Talk shop with the community.
  • Coordinate offline meetups and collaborations.
