About the Software Development Topic

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 It’s easy to get lost in the shuffle when you’re new to the industry — your skills are too outdated to help you land a job, but they’re not modern enough to help you keep one.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 Online Communities on Slack

Slack is a proprietary business communication platform, which offers many IRC-style features, including persistent chat rooms (channels) organized by topic, private groups, and direct messaging. Slack is a popular tool for online interest groups to set up realtime chat functionality, as many users are already familiar with the tool as their work communication platform.
