Connect


We know that ultimately, developing a sustainable open source software project depends on the strength of the community. Several ways to connect with the growing Avalon Media System community are listed below.  We hope you'll consider joining our listserv, chatting on slack, tracking our progress on waffle.io, or checking out our code on Github. Throughout the development process, we'll be posting updates to our blogFacebook page and Twitter, so be sure to keep up with us through those social media channels, too. Have feedback or want more information that you can't find on this website or our wiki? Feel free to contact us at any time.

For Developers

Slack Chat 

Several Hydra Partners use Slack within their institutions for team communication and collaboration. There is a Hydra Slack team that is used for discussion, questions, announcements, interest groups, and working groups. Anyone can create a new channel within the Hydra Slack team once they have registered for an account.
