What happens in Cloud Chats?

Every week, we present exciting segments to keep Cloud Chats perpetually fresh and interesting for you

Each episode features a series of segments that happen every week (Hello World, News Flash, True or False, Word of the Week, and Lightning Tutorial), but the final segment changes every episode to keep you all guessing. Stay on your toes, people.

Hello World
Our opening segment where we pose a question to ourselves and the chat. We love reading your answers live and hearing what people think, so chime in and tell us your thoughts.
News Flash
Our weekly rundown of the latest releases from DigitalOcean and the Open Source Community as well as other big news items in the tech, cloud, programming, and open-source spaces.
Word of the Week
True or False
Our weekly game where we pose ten questions and you, the audience, have to tell us if the statement is True or False. The winner of True or False will get some excellent DigitalOcean swag.
Guest Interview
We like to change it up every once in a while so we bring on guests and ask them funny questions. Sometimes they even stay for the rest of the show and indulge us in our shenanigans.
