Have a Community-Powered Earth Day ๐ŸŒ

As you might know, I've been highlighting some of the early Forems joining the network of late over the last few weeks in this series.

Today is Earth Day, and to celebrate, I wanted to highlight two special and very relevant spaces: Forest, and Development Hackers.

I also highlighted Development Hackers last week, but I wanted to bring them up again in the context of Earth Day.

Environmental justice is a matter of awareness and impact, and I think these two spaces are absolutely providing this.

Development Hackers

Work together to build impactful tech solutions for global problems


Forest ๐ŸŒฑ

A community for discovering, sharing and learning about sustainable living.


While there is currently no easy and sweeping way to fix the health of our planet, the decisions we make as software developers are critical to a sustainable environment. We are a group capable of discovering and solving pressing problems like no other โ€” especially if we commit to applying ourselves on an ongoing basis. Today, I'll be spending some time in both of these communities to fully immerse myself in their overlapping mission statements of using the power of software to help our ailing planet. I invite you to join me by clicking the links above and setting up accounts on both Forest and Development Hackers.

Happy coding and happy Earth Day!

One last thing. Youโ€™ll notice "Sign up with Forem" as an option on these Forems. This is a service we now offer to most seamlessly navigate the ecosystem and manage your identity. We want you to be able to bring your full self without having to bring your full data, so making this distributed ecosystem as straightforward as possible in the long run is really important. Create a Forem account and connect it with your DEV account via your settings. ๐Ÿ™‚

Good thing Windows has a recycle bin, so I can keep recycling all my trash and keep the Earth green.
