Hey folks! As NetApp has grown in the OSS/CNCF space over the years, so too has our community grown. Last year, we launched and verified our official Discord community. We want to make sure our choice of collaboration platform empowers us and enables all the cool and useful things we want to do together, above and beyond what The Pub is more traditionally known for in Slack, without losing the magic of what makes it great in the first place. To that end, we're excited to announce that we're moving to Discord!
TL;DR we are moving The Pub community over to Discord!

We've gone to great efforts to evaluate the things that worked well in Slack and keep them in-place, but also looking at ways that we can improve and expand The Pub to be inclusive of other areas as well. We've launched the cut-over, so please head over and create your accounts, check out the channels, and introduce yourselves to the larger NetApp community. The Pub will have its own carved out space to keep the conversations going with lots of similar channels you'll recognize, and we feel like this consolidation into the larger community is a win/win across the board. We'll be starting the spin-down of Slack at the end of the month with an eye on locking/archival at the end of August. For those interested/concerned, Slack changing their monetary policy to time-based instead of [# of messages] has also accelerated this change.
Thank you for being an amazing part of this community over the last decade, and we look forward to growing and expanding the experience even further in our new home in Discord.
Come on over!
Big thanks to Tim Clayton-Luce, Chuck Fouts, Bala Ramesh Babu, and Drew Claybrook for their help in this transition! Drop by the #Concierge-Desk and let us know if you have any questions/concerns!
