What are Software Development communities?
The software development industry is an ever-changing beast. Every year new programming languages emerge, new technologies hit the market, and existing languages and technologies are either left behind or completely re-imagined. It’s easy to get lost in the shuffle when you’re new to the industry — your skills are too outdated to help you land a job, but they’re not modern enough to help you keep one. Software developers are always looking to learn more about their craft, but they don’t always know where to look. This is a list of communities dedicated to engineers, software developers, coders, and hackers. Some are online communities dedicated to a particular technology or programming language, and some are general purpose communities or those that help developers early in their career. The communities on this list are an excellent source of inspiration, knowledge-sharing, and networking.
About Communities Tagged with "Jobs"
These communities are typically centered around a particular profession, and want to make sure that their members get employed if they are looking for work. They will host a dedicated job board, or have some sort of service/channel for connecting with employers.

DevOps, SRE, & Infrastructure (DSI)
on discordDevOps, SRE, & Infrastructure, DSI, is an online community that includes anyone with a shared technical interest. The people who make up this community share a wide range of technical-related knowledge and experience in networking, databases, IT, software, security, programming, DevOps, site reliability engineering, infrastructure, systems administration, and much more. We have people here who are freelancers, entrepreneurs, and those who are employed at small companies to large companies such as Google, Facebook, Hashicorp, and Uber. We like to think that the people who work in these roles "keep the lights on". With a community, we are able to share the knowledge with others who have a desire to learn about their specific technical interests or even wanting that next fix to the project they are working on. If you have a passion for technology, this is the place to be. At DSI, our goal is to be the place with a wide range of technical-related topics and to share them with the world. Rather than just learning something and keeping it to yourself, DSI is the place to not only share it but to learn it. We strive to make people successful and to live their dream. We do that by providing information.

FreenodeThe freenode project exists to help peer-directed project communities flourish. Peer-directed projects combine open, informal participation with broad licensing and wide dissemination of output. freenode provides facilities to peer-directed project communities, including those of free and open source software (FOSS). The IRC component of freenode is a self-referential medium, existing mainly to service IRC users — but the network was created to serve groups that exist outside of IRC. freenode is designed to encourage community members to improve their skills in the areas of cooperative effort, interpersonal communication and project coordination, and to create a real-time bridge to the outside world for our target communities.ChatEventsJobs
