Where do developers hang out in 2022?

Recommended and mentioned products

  1. Community-based Q&A part of the Stack Exchange platform.

    The developer’s life is an endless cycle of answering and asking questions on StackOverflow. Yes, StackOverflow is one of the largest communities for programmers. So, hurry up, ask your question and don’t worry, someone will surely help you (or tell you that they have the same problem).
  2. The latest independent games news, interviews, and features, from the makers of Gamasutra.

    You’re an indie game developer and you need a place to share your gaming masterpiece? Or maybe you’re just looking for an unusual game to play in the evening. Or you’re interested in various indie game projects. Here is a perfect dev community for you – Indie Games+.
  3. How hackers start their afternoons.

    Hackernoon is a perfect place where you can read (or write) plenty of various tech stories. It’s a global community of 15,000+ writers and over 3,000,000 of monthly readers. Some real person on Twitter said that you can find on Hackernoon "the best hacker and developer publication on the internet". Check it out for yourself.
  4. Originally founded as a project to simplify sharing code, GitHub has grown into an application used by over a million people to store over two million code repositories, making GitHub the largest code host in the world.

    OMG, is this really the GitHub community in the developer communities list? Yes, it is as it is. And I cannot fail to mention it. GitHub connects 83+ million developers and 200+ million projects. Nuff said.
  5. Android Forum for Mobile Phones, Tablets, Watches & Android App Development

    XDA as a mobile software development community was launched long time ago (in 2002), which makes it one of the oldest programming communities on internet (with more than 5 million of users). That’s a great community news sharing platform and a perfect place for discussions on various topics (forum).
  6. Where software engineers connect, build their resumes, and grow.

    Dev.to is also one of the largest developer online communities (it brings together almost a 1 million of devs). It’s definitely a perfect place to find people from your development area and to discuss your work. Moreover, the Dev .to blog provides a collection of useful articles and posts on a wide range of topics (psst… you can also check out my own post on Dev .to about quizzes for C++ and C# developers 👉👈).
  7. Xcode is Apple’s powerful integrated development environment for creating great apps for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Xcode 4 includes the Xcode IDE, instruments, iOS Simulator, and the latest Mac OS X and iOS SDKs.

    Since the XDA Developers community is mostly focused on Android and Windows, I’d like to show you some communities for IOS developers. You may have heard something about the main forum for IOS developers (the official Apple Developer website). However, there are numerous other communities on various platforms to your taste, for example: iOS Developers Slack Community, MacRumors forum and Subreddit for IOS...
