Create a Discord Bot!
Together we will explore the wonderful world of online communities and Discord servers. Now more than ever it is important to stay connected and continue to build community spaces. Discord is a powerful online tool to create virtual community space and help you stay connected using text, voice and video. To customize your Discord you can use bots to automate parts of your server experience. Join Tess Sutherland to learn how to use code to customize your own!
