The Seeed Forum is Now Powered by Discourse

Hi Makers ?‍? ?‍? ,

We have some very exciting news to share with you! Over the past 3 months, our team has been hard at work to provide the community with a much more friendly experience at Seeed Forum.

We heard your feedback loud and clear: you enjoy fresh topics discussed at our forum but would love to have a flat out and easy interface to get involved and wish to have a natural way of online conversations with the community. Plus, many of you have mentioned that it would be nicer to get dynamic notifications and to be kept updated with valuable discussions even when you are not logged in. All heard and We totally agree.

Starting from March 2020, the Seeed Forum has been updated to a new version which is powered by the civilized discussion platform Discourse! We encourage you to continue engaging with the community at our new forum as we’ll keep bringing you all the latest and greatest from the community. Same great topics and discussion, with a better platform.
