Chat and bridges
In recent times the four bigger messaging apps surpassed requests on the major social networks.
If we look at the bigger picture then chat-apps can be seen as the new browsers, bots would be the new websites. This is the beginning of a new(er) internet.
Instant messaging is the place with the greatest risk for creating an unwelcoming environment for a new member of our community. We need to demonstrate that you can provide something an order of magnitude more welcoming than alternatives.

After launching drupalchat in september 2017 and initiating the rocket_chat module, we’ve come a long way in adaptation and solving our current “chat island problem”, where each local community has its own slack and IRC is presumed dead.

Now the challenge is up to us win converts if (and only if) we can create and maintain a welcoming atmosphere
This session will bridge technology, business and community around a week of sprinting at Drupal Developer Days
