Jamstack Resources: Where Do Jamstackers Hang Out?

While working on JAMstack ecosystem infographic I wanted to map the resources/communities (loose terms here that involve a lot of different types of websites) where jamstackers like to hang out.

It turned out to be much harder than I thought 😲

Not only there are a lot of social channels, communities, and podcasts to follow but also support options for many tools in the space have their own Slack/Discord/Spectrum,/Reddit, etc. channel with a truly helpful community (mods/admins included).

So, I had to prioritize a bit who to follow and who to include in this list.

Now, it goes without saying that you should follow support channels of your preferred tools, right? Let’s say you are into Next.js, they provide support at their GitHub acc. In case you use Netlify, there is a Netlify community where you can ask questions or just hang out with Netlifyers. DatoCMS, one of the headless CMSs in the space, has its own Slack channel here. Website search option many of us use Algolia has a community forum and Discord channel. And don’t get me started with Gatsby. They are all over the web 🙃

While all of these are hugely helpful and important, they are bound by the company that runs them.

The list that follows, while it may have tool support channels as well (because I like them), is set mainly of other places, the ones that helped me the most on my Jamstack journey.
