I miss a place where we can chat, share tips, and build stronger bonds. Is there a Discord server that people around here use or something similar?

I'm aware of DEV Connect but never really understood how it works. πŸ˜…

I hear you, Vitor.
I miss small talk with the people at my coffee shop. I can't wait til this pandemic is over and I can have a beer at my favorite pub and talk.

I know, right? I started working remotely full-time a few months before the pandemic hit and I really miss an environment that welcomes some small talk here and there.

Sure, but I'm talking about something a bit lighter and more fast-paced.

IMO comments are great for discussion of a specific topic but I don't feel comfortable spamming #watercooler and my follower's notifications whenever I want to just chat.

We have /connect and we'll be rolling out slightly more liberated chat spaces in the near future. We've wanted to be slow with permissions on this stuff to reduce harassment and other abuse potential, but this will be around soon.

I also wish there was some place for casual tech conversations. Especially due to the pandemic.
