Discord and Alpaca Server Location

Hi, I’m wondering if Alpaca is going to have a discord server. I know we have a Slack channel, but a lot of companies are using Slack for work, so it is inconvenient to switch the workspace back and forth.

Another side question I have: if I want to set up an AWS server to run my program, which location should I choose? Where is Alpaca’s server located?

@licaili193 Alpaca previously had a presence on Discord but discontinued it primarily for compliance issues. I personally use both the Alpaca internal slack and the community slack concurrently without issue. I open them in separate tabs.

The account servers are hosted by Google at their us-east4 data center North Virginia.
