      Hall works great with services such as github, crashlytics, bitbucket etc to give your team real time information on activities going on in those sites without having to visit them individually. It gives our team some peace of mind knowing that all our information to coming directly to us when we need it!

      We haven't found a better way to communicate directly with the core contributors and developers for many open source projects we utilize on GitHub (Scala, Scala-js, Sinatra, Apache top-level projects, just to name a few).

      It is a solid piece of software that appeals to us who have used Slack in the past, and the tight integration with a single GitHub repository or organization for each Gitter room just makes sense in our eyes.

      Many GitHub communities are on Gitter. It's a great place to ask and answer questions related to open-source frameworks and libraries.
