Remote Participation

The GLH is going to have a remote option this year.  Discord is an excellent platform to participate remotely, find a team, and create a solution.

We want our Discord to be a safe, inclusive community for everyone, so we do have terms and conditions, and by joining the Discord instance you are agreeing to adhere to these.

Remote competitors

Remote competitors please join our Discord Server. We will update information here throughout the weekend. Starting March 6th, 2020 5:00PM GMT, you can post your ideas and video in #pitch-videos. Also join #find-team to find a team to share your ideas, skills, and form teams. Join one of the voice channels to communicate with your team.

How do I use discord?

Discord is a similar app to Slack. It allows users to have group voice calls, share screens, and integrate with thousands of other apps.  Here is a quick guide to using Discord.
