We use Slack extensively!

Channel naming conventions

  • All channels begin with #login-
  • All channels with external collaborators start with #login-partners-
  • Sprint team channels look like #login-team-<name>


Use these to ping a large group of people, without having to @here or @channel a room full of the wrong people.

Oncall Handles

These handles ping oncall engineers, use for emergencies or urgent items.

  • @login-appdev-oncall The application developer oncall
  • @login-devops-oncall The devops oncall
  • @login-deployer The appdev app deployer
  • @login-devtools-oncall The devtools developer oncall
