Kevin Lewis | How Discord can be used as a conference platform
Discord for virtual events - YouGotThis conference story.
Last week Karina and I talked to Kevin Lewis, Developer Advocate, Vonage/YouGotThisConf:
About money and sponsors for a paid online conference
If Discord is a suitable tool to run a virtual conference
Sometimes it is fine if a community activates only for a conference and is idle otherwise;
Sponsors are happy to explore new online events and pay if they see value;
Discord is a good enough tool as a conference platform;
