Introduction

Communities are an integral part of your journey in tech. They help you grow at lightning-fast speed while not burning out and having fun!

One of my friends, Mikal emphasizes "commUNITY"

Here are a few benefits to commUNITY:

  • Ever stuck on a bug? Unable to solve it alone. What do you think about a hundred people alongside you, each trying to help you fix the error by guiding you ๐Ÿ”ฅ

  • Do you need mentorship? Communities have a lot of experienced and skilled people with a lot of will to help others and grow together ๐Ÿ˜

  • Communities give you a lot of exposure, new people, workshops, events, hangouts, projects, and a lot more! I learnt about Open Source, Web3, APIs and a lot more! โšก

  • You can be much more accountable. Human psychology gets work done if you've shared you are doing it. If used efficiently, this will help you out a ton ๐Ÿค“

  • "Together, we can grow more", With everyone's 2 cents, it is easy to load up thousands! ๐Ÿค

  • Communities come with opportunities. I have never seen a month where I haven't met someone who hasn't gained so much from communities and their opportunities ๐Ÿคฉ

  • Everybody needs hangouts. Sometimes you are tired and need someone to talk with for a while. Community Hangouts are where a group of people at a community chit-chat and have fun in a call! โœŒ๏ธ

  • Grow your network: the only people I have connected with yet are from communities. I am more than content with my network! โœจ

Most importantly, each community is a unique experience. A community is not only a community but also a family ๐Ÿ˜‰

Communities

Let us now come forward to some of the extraordinary communities that exist.

Open Source

GitHub is not just a platform is a community of 83 million developers building software

Open Source is the biggest community out there. There is a spot for everyone out there! Open Source is the iron heart of software and will always be. Contributing to Open Source brings experience, soft skills, opportunities, knowledge and a feeling of impact.

A common myth is that Open Source is for experienced developers. No! Open Source is not only about code but also collaboration and adding value. Every year numerous no-code contributors join Open Source.
