Basic usage

The server is made up of Text channels and Voice/Video channels.

  • Text channels are separate spaces for chatting over text (Markdown). They keep conversations organized and give everyone plenty of room to talk. It is also possible to post files, and formatted snippets of code using Markdown.

  • Voice/Video channels are where you can hang out over voice and video. There is no calling or ringing required - just click on a voice channel to enter it and talk to the other members in that channel. You can also share your screen in the Voice/Video channels.

The ? INFORMATION ? channels are used to provide and exchange general information:

  • For quick clarifications you can use the # general channel.
  • We will make # 🆕_announcements_📣 whenever there will be important information to shout out.
  • You can use the # 👀_look-for-group_👫 in case you want to find team members.
