Discord phenomenon… dragged us in as well

What exactly is the Discord mentioned by us in the title? Let it answer by itself:

Discord is the easiest way to talk over voice, video, and text. Talk, hang out, and create a place to belong with your friends and communities.

Let us explain- Discord is a free application for voice, video or text communication. It sounds a bit enigmatic, therefore we will briefly describe the history of the uprising and more importantly, where the idea for it came from.

The first need arose

The first need arose: it’s fun to play, it’s even better to play and talk. The possibility of talking during an online game existed before, it was possible to communicate using the available solutions like IRC and then skype. None of these solutions fully satisfied the players. Out of need, an idea appeared, followed by a project. As the creator- Jason Citron writes himself:

Discord was born from the need to create a better way to chat and spend time online while playing video games with friends. […] We designed Discord for talking. There’s no endless scrolling, no news feed, and no tracking likes. No algorithms decide what you “should” see.

Since 2015, Discord has been constantly evolving and gaining an increasing number of users who surprise even the creators themselves with how they use their service.

The complexity of the platform itself is not its only downside. Some users accuse the platform of imperfect anti-intrusion security and delay in introducing improvements. Apart from the above-mentioned disadvantages, the desire to create

Dotnetos- .NET community

a server through which the .NET community can share their thoughts and experiences in one place.

In order to organize this place, we created several thematic channels e.g.: code design, code review, architecture, performance and many others.

General channel Development channel Languages channel

It’s not a forum nor a question-and-answer page like StackOverflow - no tags, no boards, no threads (though you can create them!).

Discord chat

We have experienced what over 350 million (!) Discord users have already experienced:

and we must admit that it is worth trying, because this place is a pleasure to stay in touch and talk to other living people.
