Slack is a team chat system where you can:
- Go to SQLslack.com to get a free instant invite, and then join
- Go to https://SQLcommunity.Slack.com, or download the Slack app
- Meet cool people and join their chat rooms
Chat rooms at SQLCommunity include:
- #SQLhelp and #PowerShellHelp – very active
- #FirstResponderKit – questions and development discussions about sp_Blitz and friends
- #Consultants – share ideas, strategies, lamentations about the business
- #Blogging and #PresentingOrSpeaking – community activism
And there’s dozens more – in the app or the web, click on the Channels list and find your fetish.
Had no idea this existed. This is amazing.
the link to get an invite to join doesn’t work properly….can you check it?
Working fine here – what seems to be the problem?
Hi Brent, the links under the hashtags (#general, #groupby, etc) are pointing to an incorrect URL (sqlcommunity.com). It should be sqlcommunity.slack.com.
Great catch! Thanks sir, fixed.
Sorry, I’m nitpicking 🙂 But the #GroupBy link is missing the /GroupBy at the end
No apologies necessary! Thanks for being detail-oriented and checking my work, hahaha.

SO, tried the first link and it dumped me to a generic-looking slack page asking me to log in. When I tried to, it told me I didn’t have an invite. Not seeing any other way to get an invite, though. Maybe they changed the UI/process since this post was last updated?
The link is the invite.
Was able to get in, but had an issue with it not dropping me in the right place… maybe just a hiccup on Slack’s end. Thx.
Is this slack community open to everyone? Or is it for people who have enrolled for the training program?
The overall Slack community is open to everyone. All of the channels are public, but the Brent Ozar one is only monitored during live training classes, and it’s only for questions about that particular live class.
Hi Brent. My friend is not very clever. They get “This link is no longer active. To join this workspace, you’ll need to ask the person who originally invited you for a new link.” when clicking the invite link here or the backup link at https://www.brentozar.com/slack/. What is going wrong there? Thanks
I’ve pinged the folks who manage those invite links – it’s the team at https://dbatools.io. Hopefully they’ll get that fixed in the next day or two. For followup questions, check with the contact links over at that project.
