Hi folks! I have long been looking for a suitable chat server (slack, mattermost or whatever) for getting quick advice and/or help with bioinformatics problems.
Biostars is a fantastic resource obviously, but I feel sometimes you just need to reach out to get some quicker replies, or be able to chat about something in real time, or just hanging out with peers, in particular when getting into a new subfield or technique.
I was thus delighted to stumble upon a new Discord server just a few days after it was created, by Luca Visentin (Saw it on the genomic.social mastodon).
- You can find Luca's announcement on Dec 21 about it on Mastodon here: https://genomic.social/@MrHedmad/109636306775247324
- And, a direct invitation link to the server here: https://discord.com/invite/arPBahn8N6
I understand if chats are not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm hoping it can grow into a thriving complement to Biostars.
Edit 7 Jan, 2023, 18:49 CET: Updated invite link to permanent one as suggested by Luca
Link updated, thanks for pointing it out!
