The two main uses of Slack are channels, which are denoted by a # like #support. We have channels for general chat, support, our Meetup, project leads, and more.
While in Slack you can target people with messages. In a public channel you can get their attention by using @ and their username, like @david. You can also send them a direct message, meaning only the two of you can see the conversation. That conversation can turn into a small group, if you choose to invite others.
