Tech Communities You Should Join! (Online and in Person)

Software development is such a challenging field that it’s almost impossible to succeed in it without having some sort of support system. With the many popular languages, frameworks, tools, and libraries available, having someone who can guide, mentor, and refer you will significantly increase your chances of success in this field.

So I’ve found amazing communities you can join for free, that will help you connect with others who share the same experience, failures, and successes within the industry.
