Why Slack release notes are so much fun

Slack’s Anna Pickard published a great post on Medium with insights into entertaining Slack release notes, that I enjoyed reading.

If you love their quirky app release notes as much as I do, Pickard’s post is a treat. I love Slack’s response to the usual tendency to publish very boring and uninformative “Bug fixes and performance improvements” release notes:

Because why stick to that, when they could contain real value, useful information, and the opportunity to connect a little bit, human to human, with the people who use Slack the most.

Interestingly enough, Medium also makes an effort to write fun and engaging release notes so it’s appropriate that Pickard picked Medium to write about this. Thanks Anna!

Read “A little thing about release notes” in full on Medium. You can thank me later.
