For our 9th meetup, we are delighted to welcome Slack and IBM for two amazing talks about the latest trends in the conversational workspace.

Slack’s platform team is coming to Europe to bring together programmers, founders, and bot builders who are building the future of work. You’ll learn how to leverage our platform for your team or Slack’s millions of users. You’ll hear about the latest security, technical, and design best practices for interactive Slack apps. And you’ll get plenty of time with our developer relations team to ask questions, share ideas, and give feedback on our roadmap. Come show us what you’re working on!

Spots are limited, so register today.
