About this event

Over the last 20 years, as developers have become essential across industries, more places for developers to connect have started to spring up. Both online and in-person forums have risen to solve problems, create learning opportunities, and encourage networking.

These various communities allow developers to expand their knowledge regardless of their level of experience and join conversations that wouldn’t be possible inside their existing role.

Getting Involved

The best way to get involved is by seeking out opportunities to learn.

Each platform within the developer community offers unique openings for education. If you have a problem you need solved or a new programming language to learn, there’s a good chance you’ll find assistance through others in your field. Dive into a topic you’re interested in and go from there.

Once you get involved you’ll find a natural expansion of your network and opportunities.

Sharing Knowledge

Online platforms not only allow you to help others solve their problems but help you gain a better understanding of your skills. You might have a broad idea of how something works, but teaching allows you to break it down and truly understand it from the foundation.

By sharing knowledge you open yourself up to more conversations, learning, and ultimately more opportunities. By breaking down code, you reexamine it and solidify your understanding in order to teach. Proving your knowledge highlights your authority on the subject, which is beneficial among peers - and appealing to recruiters.

By creating and contributing to the developer community you are sharing our knowledge and that always pays off.

The developer community becomes stronger through collaboration.
