Confluence vs Discord: What are the differences?

What is Confluence? One place to share, find, and collaborate on information. Capture the knowledge that's too often lost in email inboxes and shared network drives in Confluence instead – where it's easy to find, use, and update.

What is Discord? All-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that’s free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. Discord is a modern free voice & text chat app for groups of gamers. Our resilient Erlang backend running on the cloud has built in DDoS protection with automatic server failover.

Confluence can be classified as a tool in the "Project Management" category, while Discord is grouped under "Web and Video Conferencing".

"Wiki search power" is the primary reason why developers consider Confluence over the competitors, whereas "Fast and easy set-ups and connections" was stated as the key factor in picking Discord.

According to the StackShare community, Confluence has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1172 company stacks & 654 developers stacks; compared to Discord, which is listed in 45 company stacks and 38 developer stacks.

    Redmine
    Redmine

    We were using a hosted version of Redmine to track defects and user stories originally. We migrated to Jira.

    Jira was an easy decision for a number of reasons:

    • It's much more "Scrum ready" straight out of the box
    • It's so much easier to keep a track of progress (I love the reporting)
    • It natively encourages you to adhere to Scrum/Agile/Kanban practices
    • Atlassian has a fantastic DevOps ecosystem when considering the likes of Confluence and Bamboo etc
    • So many integrations!
    • Its UI is so intuitive which makes it an absolute pleasure to use!

    I know there are alot of other tools in this space but not even considering anything else at the moment. Love Jira!

    Review ofDiscordDiscord

    Discord combines the text and image sharing of Skype and Teamspeak 3's high speed voice connection to create this reliable software platform. With the implementation of choosing whether you wish to chat with friends in a 1-on-1 conversation, to joining a community channel and meet up with new people.

    Discord provides the opportunity of letting the user join a channel with ease using nothing but a link they can paste into their browser. Discord also gives their members a wider experience being cross-platform, including Windows, Mac, Linux as well as IOS and Android mobile devices.

    Discord, on top of all the above, allows the user to post images in both channels and 1-on-1 messaging, aswell as play .gif and .mp4 files.

    Implemented also is the custom profile and friend system, allowing the user to add or remove friends, giving the user a vaster experience customizing their own way they wish.

    Discord is an overall very well produced platform allowing a diverse experience in communication and multimedia.

    All ideas and knowledge that needs to be elaborated or shared is done in this wiki. With plugins for create embedded prototypes.

    Also is part of the development processes to create requisites and other artefacts.

    It's main use is in the development processes, it could be used to create manuals and software documentation as well, but is used more as a collaboration enterprise tool.

    Durch die einfache und plattformübergreifende Nutzung sowie die Möglichkeit schnell rollenbasierte Kanäle zu erstellen, bietet sich Discord hervorragend für die Kommunikation im Team sowie auch mit den Spielern an. Wir nutzen Discord statt Slack, da wir unseren Fokus im Gaming Bereich haben und Discord hier stark vertreten ist.

    Discord is home to many game development communities, including AGDG (Amateur Game Development General), RGD (Reddit Game Development), and Game Dev League. When I'm working with WebGL, they are always very knowledgeable and helpful in answering my questions about physics, vectors and data structures.

    We first used slack and switched to Discord later to stay near at where the community is at, while still be able to have private conversations and stay in contact. Discord offered everything we needed and used from Slack previously, plus the community-part, so it was an easy decision.

    All of our (Engineering) knowledge is in Confluence. We document our thinking, our architecture, support recipes, trip notes, anything and everything. It's very important in a remote setting, to be have this type of knowledge store.

    Discord is used for all the discussions with our community, and discussions between our entire staff (including Community Managers, Chat Moderators and BATs). We also use a Discord bot we developed to deploy new code to the server.

    We use Discord for our community as well as generic staff communications. It works as a main selling point for ShadowICT as well as a central place for monitoring alerts and announcements to go.

    We use Confluence for specifications and knowledge sharing. We chose Confluence over other wikis primarily because of its integration with JIRA
