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.
