The AWS ML community is moving to Discord

After five years of hosting our community on Slack, the AWS Machine Learning Community is moving to Discord.

Over the past years many people have joined and contributed to the community. People have shared countless tips & tricks and helped people with their ML and DeepRacer journey.

Why did we take his decision?

Slack has been at the core for the Community’s activity from day one of it existence. We would not get to where we are without it. Over the time, we have learned to leverage its strengths and live with limitations.

Over the past year we have noticed that more and more of this knowledge is disappearing due to Slack’s limited history, harming our ability to grow and sustain the community. This harms community engagement because many channels are empty by now. Slack also does not provide us with the tools we need to further grow and sustain the community.

What will happen to Slack?

Slack will stay around for a while, whilst we migrate to Discord. We will slowly reduce the number of available channels. Announcements made in our new Discord server will be relayed to Discord to ensure nobody misses a thing!
