Fireside chats happen in the Scrimba Discord in the #🔥fireside Stage channel:

Stage channels are for audio-only conversations where some people can talk, and others can listen as the audience. You're invited to press the raise hand 🖐 icon if you want to talk:

Around the time of the event, a #🔥fireside-chat text channel will magically appear. Here, you can say "hello" and join in on the fun, even if you don't want to speak up!


To join this event, you'll need to install Discord then join the Scrimba Discord community.

If you're new to Discord, it can feel overwhelming but don't worry! It takes much less time than you might expect to become a Discord master 😌. If you need any help at all, email [email protected]


Everyone is welcome at Scrimba no matter what you look like, where you're from, or what you're interested in.

Read our Code of Conduct (it takes less than 5 minutes) before joining.
