I see, well the free version does give you 10 integrations so that should take you pretty far. It certainly depends on your usage and company culture but I would recommend SlackArchive if you want to keep your institutional knowledge (and continue using Slack for free).
Thanks for the reply Max. I agree with you completely, to be clear I said that Slack shouldn’t be used by open source projects or businesses for free.

This post is so helpful that I think it should be required reading for every serious Launch School student or students thinking about doing the Capstone program. Thanks Nick, I knew I wasn’t ready for the 109 interview but it was tricky to determine where I should spend my extra time studying.

I listened to some of the Launch School podcasts where one person already had CS degree and another was doing a CS degree concurrently with Launch School.
