Different teams use different platforms to communicate within themselves. When teams on different communication platforms want to collaborate, though - there's a bit of an issue. In this post, I document how one can setup channels on various platforms (Slack, IRC, Gitter) and bring them all together on Riot.
I've come across a few mailing lists for neuroscientists, but I couldn't find a chat channel. While mailing lists suit certain purposes, open source communities tend to use a combination of mailing lists and chat channels - each platform serves different purposes. TLDR: here's a new chat channel on Gitter here for everything neuroscience related. It is also accessible using the IRC and Riot.
