ZATech Slack is a community for those working in and around the South African tech community to gather, share and learn from each other.

By joining you agree to abide by the Code of Conduct. Please take a moment to read it and take special note we have specific rules about recruitement.

The group is intended to be high signal, low noise. Think of it as an overlapping series of professional groups rather than IRC in the 90s.

Be kind. Don't be snarky. Have curious conversation; don't cross-examine. Comments should get more thoughtful and substantive, not less, as a topic gets more divisive.

WANT AN INVITE? Send an email to invite@zatech.co.za from an address you're going to use for a long time (not your work email — you'll be in this community awhile). Include your name, occupation, a brief explanation of why you want to join the Slack, and how you heard about us. Finally, please include a link to your LinkedIn, Twitter, or Medium — any site that demonstrates you're a human. None of the above information will be shared with anyone but the admin team.

Please be aware that posting content on ZATech could be recognised as publishing information in the public sphere. If you publish another person's private information without their consent, you could be in contravention of the Protection of Personal Information Act. Admins who become aware of flagrant breaches might be compelled to report incidents to the Information Regulator. If you believe that your privacy rights are being infringed on ZATech, please reach out to someone on the Admin team directly. Please be advised however that the use of Slack and your membership and contributions on the ZATech workspace offers no warranty or guarantee to your privacy, and that publishing your private information on ZATech is done at your own risk.
