We’re sad to announce that we have to cancel this talk. The Python library, discord.py, has very recently been deprecated and will no longer receive maintenance. There currently isn’t a good alternative library that has full discord functionality, so for this reason, we’re canceling the talk. I didn’t feel comfortable talking about a library that will be out of date in the near future. I will happily reschedule this talk if/when the situation is resolved.
All the best, Mason
