Interested in enhancing your Discord experience and building a customized app for your friends? Discord developers have made mini-games, LFG helpers, leaderboards, game alerts, wiki lookups, and more - so join us for a platform overview, some inspiration, and a power session on new features and design best practices. Whether you want to build for just your friends or to build a business, Discord enables you to create fun and personalized experiences in a place where millions of users already hang out. Discord apps can take just weeks (or even days) to prototype - you can even test some concepts from your next game idea! Come learn directly from our API team - and we won't judge you for doodling about your Big Idea while we teach you how to get started.


After this session you will have all of the tools and information you need to go and start developing for Discord
