Introducing the Forem Shop! New CodeNewbie Merch, Giveaways, and More.

Cross-Posted from DEV.

Editorial Note: This giveaway is now closed. We have emailed everyone who entered below β€” if that's you, please check your email for a special prize code. Don't see it? Peep your spam folder!

Today, the Forem team is excited to share that they've redesigned the beloved DEV Shop to be more representative of our community's structure and relationship with CodeNewbie Community and Forem.

Introducing... the Forem Shop

Now, you'll be able to find all the DEV merch you love alongside a brand new CodeNewbie collection β€” all underneath the umbrella Forem brand (and yes, there's new Forem merch, too!).

A peek at the biggest changes to our shop...

Restructured Logic

As you'll see when you head over to, DEV merch is now a collection underneath Forem β€” as is CodeNewbie merch. The reason for this change is that our ecosystem has changed dramatically since the DEV Shop was launched a few years back. Now, DEV is just one community underneath the Forem umbrella of open-source communities and Forem wanted the structure of our shop to reflect that.

View the DEV Collection here.


Inclusive Sizing and Fit Language

One of the most important changes Forem has made to the shop is the removal of gendered language from the sizing and fit terminology. We think our new language better reflects Forem's values of inclusivity across the gender spectrum (and many other human spectrums, too).

Forem Collection

You can now buy sleek Forem-themed merch to show the world that you believe in a more transparent and accessible internet with a greater emphasis on healthy communities. The Forem team hopes you love it as much as they do!

CodeNewbie Collection

It was high time CodeNewbie got a dedicated collection of products that represents the friendliest community of early-career software developers, coders, and mentors! We look forward to adding to the CodeNewbie Collection over time.

"Computers, Amirite?" Merch

Just for fun, DEV has released a small sub-collection of "Computers, amirite?" merch under our DEV Collection. Because really... what more is there to say?

I like the manner in which you allow yourself to get totally engrossed in the activity that you find most enjoyable. Another one of my many hobbies is opening treasure boxes (for more information on this topic, check out ). I also have a wide range of interests. You have the opportunity to try out an innovative feature on our website referred to as the mystery box simulator, and if you do so, you will get real gifts. I am certain that you will find this to be appealing.
