About Discord Meet-Ups
Discord is a free, platform-independent chat and texting platform, which can be run in a browser or as an app (desktop/Android/iPhone). I’ve set up a server with text and chat channels for different events. It’s pretty easy to use, but if you are not a regular chat platform user, join 15 minutes early for a “meet-and-greet” test chat session.
