One way to speed up your career journey as a technologist is to become part of the community in your area. The network, knowledge and exposure you get from being part of the community are simply priceless. Iron sharpens iron and it is important to get around like minds heading towards the same direction.

I believe being a part of the developer communixty helped to make my journey faster. From the community, I had access to study materials, networked with great minds, got access to helpful information and job opportunities.

I have identified a few links to help people easily connect to communities around them, feel free to create a Pull Request to submit your links here as I’d be updating this article very often.
