What is Discourse?

Discourse is a modern forum software for your community. The software is customizable via open source code, which you can find for free on GitHub, though you will have to pay for a platform to install that code on. Discourse allows you to maintain community data and create multiple forums for discussion, like boards and posts, on both mobile and web devices. Discourse is used widely in the tech space and for other affinities like pop culture, gaming, and podcasting.
