Still Slacking Off

AIM8 Applications, Integration and Mobile

Location: Steamboat

TUESDAY, 9:30 - 10:15 a.m.

An update to last year's Red Stapler winning presentation: we're still slacking off. In this session we'll explore how Vanderbilt University implemented Slack in their Web Communications office (and other offices around campus), integrated it with their help desk, project management system, and code repositories, and how it completely changed the culture of the office.
