Discord is a popular online community platform. It offers an API for developers to build bots that interact with the conversations. Building a Discord Bot is a perfect project to learn to code and learn about the cloud, for it’s easy to get started and interesting to work on.

In this technical hands-on workshop, we are going to build a simple Discord Bot using Python, and host it on Google Cloud App Engine.

Note: The participants should register a free Google Cloud account (no billing account required) before the workshop. And the email they use to login the account needs to be shared with the organisers at the workshop for accessing services. 

Format

The workshop will be delivered over Zoom
