All about how Quantic uses Slack

Quantic will use Slack as a platform for a number of things, including; getting to know your classmates, signing up for group projects, engaging in discussion on course materials and concepts, and receiving notifications about course administrative topics. 

You will receive a link to join your cohort’s Slack group along with additional orientation information the week prior to your cohort’s start date. There will be members of Quantic staff available in the Slack rooms to help answer any questions that might come up as you go through the program! 

Below are some details about the channels you can expect to see in your Quantic Slack Workspace and some frequently asked questions:
