We’re excited to be teaming up with Discord to bring you Discord Stages – Product & Design Collaboration Story. Discord also launched a new stage discovery feature!
Join us for a fireside chat with Rick Ling (Product Manager) and Shawn Park (Staff Product Designer) on how they created Discord Stages. Learn about how they went from idea to product, what challenges they overcame, their future plans, and more. You may also submit your questions for Rick and Shawn via Luma to be asked live as well.
