In this lesson, you’ll learn what a Discord bot is, and the types of automated actions they can programmatically perform. These programs look and act like users, and automatically respond to events, and commands on Discord. Discord bot users (or just bots) have nearly unlimited applications.
For the next lesson, you’ll need to create a developer account using Discord’s Developer Portal. You can log in with an existing Discord user account, or you can register for a new user account from the same URL.
