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, open source software is developed, 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 It’s easy to get lost in the shuffle when you’re new to the industry — your skills are too outdated to help you land a job, but they’re not modern enough to help you keep one.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 list of communities is 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.

CodeNewbieCodeNewbie started as a weekly Twitter chat to connect people learning to code by Saron Yitbarek. Since then, it's grown into a supportive, international community of people learning to code. Whether you're in need of early-career mentorship or you've just graduated from bootcamp and you're ready to pass along some wisdom, the CodeNewbie community is your place to champion beginner programmers, get support, and talk about the field of programming. In January 2020, CodeNewbie was acquired by Forem, the open source software company behind DEV — and this very site! Together, both communities have become a large support system for programmers of all levels, offering podcasts, Twitter chats, the annual CodeLand conference, hackathons, a platform for developers to write about their knowledge and experience, and connection with one another. We are so happy to have you as part of the CodeNewbie + Forem family. 💚 Happy coding!
