WSO2 will be officially moving from Slack to Discord on Saturday, October 1, 2022. Our Slack community has grown to over 7,000 users, and we are excited to have them be a part of our new community on Discord!

We love Slack, but it's not built for large online communities as it lacks certain moderation features. Which makes sense—after all, Slack was built for corporate teams.

Discord, on the other hand, was built specifically for large online communities. Many large communities, including development communities like Reactiflux, Python, and Java have moved already. It allows for an unlimited number of users, unlimited file uploads (with a per-file size limit), unlimited message histories, and great moderation and spam filtering features. Discord also includes voice and video chat, which will give our users a more immersive community experience.

The main purpose of this transition is to deliver a better experience for our community members, and we feel Discord will do just that.

We will continue to keep Slack active in the interim and ensure a smooth transition, but all WSO2 team members and mods will be waiting for you on Discord from Saturday, October 1, 2022.

We look forward to seeing you as part of our new community! Click here to join our server today.

You can also get involved in our community by participating in our Stack Overflow Collective or contributing to the WSO2 Github repository.
