Level is an alternative to real-time chat designed for the software development workflow.
Sign up at level.app to reserve your handle and get on the updates list.
Level is currently in the pre-launch phase and under active development by a small groups of people. Most tasks are being tracked offline as the foundations of the product come together, in the interest of rapid development and reaching an alpha stage for companies to start using it as quickly as possible.
Interested in helping out? My goal is to (eventually) keep some tasks filed in the issue tracker marked as good candidates for community contribution.

the project root.
Then, be sure to run
script/bootstrap to install node dependencies with the
correct version of node.
