Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

Frontiers is a new conference by Slack where attendees can delve into the future of teamwork. It will feature a mix of keynotes, breakout sessions, and focused experiences, all with the aim to provide actionable insights around how groups of people can work together more effectively.

Whether you’re leading or contributing to a team, or building things that help people on teams work, you’ll get the opportunity to focus on how teamwork is changing and what those changes mean for the future. You’ll come away with concrete ideas you can apply in your organization, along with fresh information about new Slack features and partners.


The conference will feature multiple tracks on teams and teamwork, including a dedicated developer track with a more in–depth and hands–on look at Slack’s API and platform.


At Frontiers, attendees will:
  1. Explore big ideas on the way we work, with people who face the same challenges as you do – and come away with a tool kit of smart, actionable strategies on improving communication and teamwork for you to take back to your company.
  2. Hear from industry leaders (including our own CEO, Stewart Butterfield), successful Slack app developers and all-around interesting people with insights into how the way we work is broken (and how to go about fixing it).
  3. Meet the Slack team and other people who use Slack in your and other industries; swap ideas, get hands-on help (and answers to all of your questions), and leave with tools and tips you can use immediately.
  4. Glimpse the future. Be the first to hear about new products and features coming to Slack; and the ecosystem of partners hard at work building on the Slack platform.
