Slack Channel

I'm currently in the $99/month tech degree for iOS and strongly debating the next level up. However, I really find it hard to justify an extra hundred dollars an month just for the slack channel, but would like the peer reviews. Can anyone give me insight to what the slack channel is and if it is worth it? How often do you use it, and do you think it is worth the extra cash? Do you find community is just as effective?

Hey!

I think the slack channel is worth it, because you get to talk to and get help sometimes from people are doing the same things as you! like one of the best bits about the techdegree slack channel is that if you have a problem with a project then you could ask in the slack channel if anyones had the same problem or if you're doing this bit the right way, or something, and I use the slack channel more than I do the community because I can talk to people who are doing the exact same project as me! The slack channel has different rooms and they have a different room for each project and a different room for questions about the techdegree, I use it alot to help me, and I think that the extra $100 is a bit pricy but its totally worth it because you also get peer reviews from your code and easier access to talk to people who are on the same course as you!

I hope you are enjoying the techdegree too!

what is your slack? I have an account, just not a premium account.
