Figure: See how Slack can be setup to improve your Devops
With all these different tools being used to collect information in your application, a developer will frequently need to visit many different sites to get information like:
Was the last build successful?
What version is in production?
What errors are being triggered on the app?
Is the server running slow?
What is James working on?
This is where a tool like Slack comes in handy. It can help your team aggregate this information from many separate sources into one dedicated channel for your project. The other benefits also include a new team member instantly having access to the full history of the channel as well so no conversations are lost.
At SSW we integrate Slack with:
- Octopus Deploy
- Visual Studio
Even better, you can create bots in slack to manage things like deployments and updating release notes.
- Good example - One centralized location for team chat, deployment issues, exceptions and TFS changes
