Most active Developer Communities you should join in 2022

The most difficult challenges for self-thought developers are: finding resources, mentors, opportunities, and so on. But most self-taught developers don't realize there won't be problems like this if they involve in communities and especially the right ones. So, in this blog, I'll tell you about my favorite communities of all time and how they can help you. These aren't just any communities I found by googling. I've been in these communities for over a year.

Let's get started

In case you're unfamiliar, developer communities are communities created by developers for developers. This is where developers, devrel, dev enthusiasts, and anybody else interested in development hang out, interact with like-minded folks, share opportunities, what they're building, learning, and so on. Communities are for everyone; there will be no bias; no one cares which college you are from if you are a beginner or an expert developer, a 10-year-old or a 70-year-old.

1. Showwcase

  • and many more...

2. Major League Hacking

MLH is my favorite hacker community (Hackathons - not hacking). They conduct hackathons every weekend. If you are starting your dev journey then you should participate in their WEEKLY hackathons.

6. Dev

dev

I began my technical writing journey with Dev, and the support was amazing. You can talk about various topics and show off your creations. Fun fact: You will see that comments are more popular than articles πŸ˜‚. This demonstrates how much they support each other ✊.

What you can do?

  • Ask your doubts openly or discuss any topic - Dev is not a 100% blogging platform.
  • Participate in events and hackathons.
  • Improve your writing skills.

Where can you get involved?

That's it!


I know there are so many active communities that it's hard to include them all, so I've highlighted a few with which I've been involved for a long time. So please share your favorite communities in the comments.
