The Origins of Discobot

Is the Discobot tutorial an innate function of Discourse groups, or is it something @avatar has coded specifically for this group? It reminds me a lot of the github optional tutorial bot, so I’m wondering if it’s based on that.

It’s a built-in Discourse feature (see here: Who is Discobot? ); I don’t know if it’s any relation to the GitHub bot, but it might be related to Stack Overflow’s, given that they have some of the same developers.
