At some point, someone besides myself (maybe) will write a follow up to this article specifically for the programming/maker/electronics communities using Discord as well. For many of the same reasons others have moved to Discord as described in The Atlantic, same goes for many tech communities as well. It probably would be helpful to have some awesome-like list of tech-related Discord communities as well. There is not an OPML file (RSS) of servers I can export from Discord, but maybe there should be.

Here are our recent stats.

We reached over 11,000+ humans around March 11, 2019. We share projects, coordinate events, make new friends, build open-source together like CircuitPython, we’ve worked really hard to make this a special place for everyone to share their projects, code, and things they make.

Join today! https://adafru.it/discord

Thank you everyone!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
