Tech Communities You Can Join As A Developer.

Tech Communities You Can Join As A Developer.

Sequel to the article on how to get a mentor in tech, I received responses and queries about the many tech communities that one may join.

These are the few communities I've been able to collate.


Frontendmentor, otherwise known as FEM, is a website that has coding challenges you can practice with. These challenges range from the newbie to the guru level.

If you're a front-end developer, Frontendmentor has a slack channel of over 180, 000 community members. You can throw your issues or coding-related problems in the help channel, and members; including the founder Matt Studert, are ready to help as soon as they can.
