Hello World!!! If you are reading this, consider you lucky, you just found something that will change, or at least I hope, your future as a developer. Something that will guide you through your long, but how wonderful, programming journey. But let's not unnecessarily lengthen the intro, to the point!
Ps: I know that you are a busy dev, so our organization will also focus on that.
From our tagline: In a sentence: we are cool, and you need to follow us.
From our Bio: @WorldInDev is a programming community for exchanging ideas and foster innovation. We provide daily code news, weekly digest, and monthly events.
To elaborate: We are a "made by devs for devs" community, founded with the utopian objective of making code accessible for everyone. We firmly believe in free access to coding and education, at any age. We want to help all devs, from the ones who are about to start (and I add for these, good luck!) to the most experienced ones. Our core values are equality, respect, and fun!
But, as I show you now, we don't just sell smoke:
Or: What do we do? Although we have already drawn the lines of our future path, they have not yet been drawn. We plan to start as a dev.to based blogging organization, with different series running contemporaneously. Discord will allow us to be more user-focused. We don't want to be static. The main objective of going beyond a simple blog is to empower communication between developers and pair programming. Look at other famous websites in programming: Stack Overflow, GitHub, or even Dev.to. They are all based on devs helping other devs. And this is what we want to do. To do this we are building a cooperation program between developers. The ones more experimented will partner with a newcomer in programming. Then each binomial can participate in coding events that we will host, with special prizes for 🏆winners🏆. This leads to another of our big objectives. We will be 𝕒𝕔𝕥𝕚𝕧𝕖, mostly with daily articles and monthly events, and trying to improve every day.
+2 special articles every month for our Patreon members
Events - only available on Discord:
--> Pair programming - Our server provides a program to stimulate creativity and teamwork, that needs to be enhanced in programming. We will create pairs with a more experienced developer and a less experienced one. They can get to know each other, exchange questions (especially for the newcomer), and train together. But above all, they can participate at...
--> Code Battles! - We have in mind lots of weird and funny things to make dev compete. As we want to encourage our binomial program, many of our challenges will be in pairs. For example, only the less experienced of the two can write the code, but he can stay on call with his partner. We will also try to do more serious events like mini hackathons.
--> 100 days of code support - We encourage the brave who want to start or are doing the #100daysofcode. So we are starting a program to help does, more on discord.
--> Blogging support - This is what I am most proud of, because I would have dreamed of having it when I started. We think that knowledge should have no limits, so every dev should blog about what they know. We provide free chat support for the entire process of creating a blog, from setup to publishing the first articles. And all the articles written with us will be featured in our daily digest! Now you understand why it's my favorite?
--> Dev talks - We will need 1k+ members for that, but one of our dreams is to invite successful developers to talk at live events, hosted on discord.
In addition to our events, we will organize giveaways every month. We put the money for the first months, but then we hope to be able to offer more important prizes (or more prizes every month) thanks to sponsors and the great patreons members. Although there will be more members afterward, therefore less chance of winning.
For this first month (April) we will gift a free Udemy course. The earlier you enter the more chances you have to participate and win!
First, we will try to create an active community on discord, dev.to, and twitter. Our major goal is to be able to help as many developers as possible, providing a community. Our second goal is to host how many events as possible, giveaways, hackathons, code battles... Then with a solid community, in the more distant future, we will create a website and extension to help developers in their daily life. A kind of dev companion with lots of features, but let's say no more for now...
We can't do anything without you, you are all that matters...
--> Join our Newsletter - Leaving your email will allow you to stay updated on our upcoming events + receiving our weekly recap (with top articles, past and ongoing tech events, important product releases...) - It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes, and that's very important for us!
--> Spread the voice:
- Tell your friends, nothing difficult about that
- Retweet us or make tweets mentioning us
- Republish this article - Open this repo, copy the markdown, and republish this article on dev.to or in your blog!
- Make a listing (for the wildest, also in the repo)
PS: We are also searching for sponsors, come forward if you want to become one / you know someone interested.
📢 Thanks for reading and --> Happy coding!
