How I spent my weekend

I’ve spent much of this holiday weekend on Discord, asking questions. This is because I’ve been working on an overhaul of the Open Journal Matcher, and it has led me to work with technologies that I find very unfamiliar (hello, task queues!), so I have a lot to ask. Discord channels focused on very specific technical topics are super helpful.

I also spent the weekend on Discord in part because the tech meetups that I had enjoyed prior to the pandemic are now (obviously) online, including on Discord. So while I miss the irl meetings, I am happy that those communities are now happening 24/7.

Discord reminds me of IRC. I liked IRC. It’s nice to see an old idea reworked with modern amenities.
