The Beauty of Communities

Community is a force that powers the development and growth of individuals in several sectors of society. The benefits cannot be over-emphasized especially in the growth of students in tech.

Communities are Built on Shared Struggles

 Communities are usually built on shared struggles of individuals learning in a particular region, and the goals of each community differ on the collective needs of individuals in the group. 

Over the years, these communities have grown  with different goals and missions but still with the general aim of providing a platform for developers to learn, interact, share ideas, collaborate, support each other, and grow.

Community Builders are Superheroes

According to Wikipedia: A superhero or superheroine is a stock character that possesses superpowers, abilities beyond those of ordinary people, and fits the role of the hero, typically using his or her powers to help the world become a better place, or dedicating themselves to protecting the public and fighting crime.

Building Community is Investing in the Future

Community is a force that powers the development and growth of individuals in several sectors of society. Over time several people take it upon themselves to lead others and build a shared space for everyone to thrive. Little did those “several peoples” know that their current actions are investments that will yield solid ROI for themselves and the people they lead in the future. In this talk, we’d talk about communities, why community builders are superheroes, and what this means for the future.
