Screen Shot 2022-09-23 at 11.43.56 AM.png

We’re really excited to partner with Slack on their new Slack Platform, which is a faster, flexible, and more secure way to build on top of Slack, featuring:

  • A new modular architecture grounded in building blocks — functions, triggers, and workflows
  • Secure, serverless deployment powered by Slack’s managed infrastructure and Deno’s secure-by-default runtime
  • A faster, more intuitive developer experience, including new tools like the Slack CLI, SDK written in TypeScript, and data stores

Try it out today!
