We’re three months into 2021 and things are looking up from a wild last year. Since we’re all glued to our computers for a bit longer, here are some developer communities that you should check out (if you are a coder). If you aren’t a coder, you may still find them interesting 😁.
HashNode’s focus is allowing developers to easily create their own blogs, and share knowledge with others. Blogs created in HashNode are customizable using their WYSIWYG editor. This is what sets HashNode apart from other like-communities.
Dev.to is a social network, much like HashNode, but more collaborative. Users can do all the normal social media stuff like create posts, comment, like, etc. but there is more of it here than in HashNode.
Codewars is a community focused on presenting and solving challenges using using the language of your choice. It’s a great resource for learning new skills and languages, as well as seeing how others solve the same problems. It also brings some competition to the table, allowing users to team up and accumulate points for solving problems.
You may know GitHub as a way to manage a product’s source code, but did you know that you can also view browse popular topics, trending repos, and explore interesting repos?
If you are focused more on web development, these subreddits are a good start: r/WebDev, r/frontend and r/web_design. If you aren’t focused on web development, Reddit also has communities for many different languages, as well as some general purpose and humorous ones.
