Most active Developer Communities you should join in 2022

The most difficult challenges for self-thought developers are: finding resources, mentors, opportunities, and so on. But most self-taught developers don't realize there won't be problems like this if they involve in communities and especially the right ones. So, in this blog, I'll tell you about my favorite communities of all time and how they can help you. These aren't just any communities I found by googling. I've been in these communities for over a year.

Let's get started

In case you're unfamiliar, developer communities are communities created by developers for developers. This is where developers, devrel, dev enthusiasts, and anybody else interested in development hang out, interact with like-minded folks, share opportunities, what they're building, learning, and so on. Communities are for everyone; there will be no bias; no one cares which college you are from if you are a beginner or an expert developer, a 10-year-old or a 70-year-old.

1. Showwcase


Showwcase is a social media platform built for developers. Literally, every feature on this platform is developer-focused 🤯.

What you can do?

  • Network with other developers.
  • Share what you are building and get feedback from the community.
  • Ask your doubts.
  • It has a " show " feature where you can write blogs, showcase your product, and share podcasts and videos.
  • Join communities - There is a community for everything and everyone. ReactJs community, Java community, blockchain community, meme community 😶 and more.
  • Share your profile with a custom domain - showwcase gives you a free showwcase subdomain domain or you can use your own domain for your profile. For example, my showwcase profile -
  • and many more...

Where can you get involved?

2. Major League Hacking


MLH is my favorite hacker community (Hackathons - not hacking). They conduct hackathons every weekend. If you are starting your dev journey then you should participate in their WEEKLY hackathons. If you are 18+ and then apply for MLH Fellowship - Fellowship is a 12-week internship alternative in which you learn and use your skills by working on real-world projects that are used by millions of people.

What you can do?

  • Participate in weekly hackathons.
  • Learn and build together.
  • Learn by doing.
  • Grow your skills.

3. Aviyel and Eddiehub

If you want to start your Open Source journey then there are no better places than Aviyel and eddiehub.

3.1 Aviyel


Aviyel supports the growth of Open Source communities. Folks at Aviyel are so creative and supportive. You can begin your Open Source contributions with one of their onboarded projects and get rewards for your efforts. You can always ask your doubts if you feel stuck.

What you can do?

  • Attend events to learn more about projects that have been onboarded.
  • Create content for your favorite projects.

5. Buildspace

I observed almost all the web3 communities are active and supportive, but buildspace is the first one I've been introduced to, and it's great.

What you can do?

  • Anything web3
  • Learn together with interactive courses
  • Build together
  • Find opportunities


Where can you get involved?

6. Dev


I began my technical writing journey with Dev, and the support was amazing. You can talk about various topics and show off your creations. Fun fact: You will see that comments are more popular than articles 😂. This demonstrates how much they support each other ✊.

What you can do?

  • Ask your doubts openly or discuss any topic - Dev is not a 100% blogging platform.
  • Participate in events and hackathons.
  • Improve your writing skills.

Where can you get involved?

That's it!

I know there are so many active communities that it's hard to include them all, so I've highlighted a few with which I've been involved for a long time. So please share your favorite communities in the comments.
