Corné Hoskam

Hi, my name is Corné Hoskam. I am a Lead Developer, Umbraco MVP, and Umbraco Certified Master working in the Netherlands. Over the years I have had the chance to work on various versions of Umbraco, ranging from Umbraco v6, v7, v8, v9, v10, and now v11. Over the years the quote “Come for the Platform, stay for the Community” is one that I feel represents Umbraco the best. I constantly learn more about the platform through the help of others, and try to share my knowledge throughout my Umbraco journey on platforms like Twitter, Discord, GitHub, the Umbraco Forum, and my own website ( 

Alongside my professional career, I like listening to artists like Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra & Johnny Cash, am a lover of craft beers & whiskeys, I try to learn the Spanish language through the use of Duolingo, I like playing various kinds of creative/sandbox/factory-builder style games, and am a fan of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter series! (Plenty of hobbies as you can see!😄)

Empowering Communities with Discord & Umbraco

The importance of Community is at the heart of both Discord and Umbraco. Corné shows us how this is more than just an ethos, guiding us on how to harness the power of the Discord API and the Umbraco CMS together to create bots and other tools that you can use to help empower your communities on Discord.
