There are open source alternatives that may be worth exploring
MatterMost and RocketChat. There's so much hype around Slack atm, not
sure what the long term viability of it is. It's basically fancy modern
proprietary IRC.

I would always be more enthused by an open source solution for the usual
reasons.

All the best
Leo
