Developer Discord Communities

whoisryosuke profile image Ryosuke Updated on ・3 min read

Recently it's seemed that a lot of developer communities are moving over to Discord from the myriad of dispersed platforms (like Github issues, Slack, or message boards like Spectrum). Discord has been a great way to connect with other developers across the world on the instanenous level only real-time chat can provide. There's nothing like having a problem, going to the #help chat, and getting 4+ insightful responses right away. It's also nice to have the option to spin up a voice or video chat with fellow devs and work out a problem together.

Here's a list of developer Discord communities that I've discovered and joined over time.

List of Developer Discords

Software Specific

These are official (or semi-official) communities for software, libraries, and frameworks.

Communities

These are more "community" driven Discords that might not focus on one particular coding language, library, etc.

Events / Conferences

These communities are driven around particular tech events that may be local or remote.

Emulation

Anything that I missed?

Are you a member of any developer communities that I missed? Comment here or let me know on Twitter. Always looking to spread the spotlight and create more accessibility.

You can also check out the Programming and Technology tags on Discord.me, a directory site for Discord communities.

References

Shoutout

Thank you to the following people for contributing to the list across various platforms.

For over 10 years now, I've been developing innovative cannabis technology, and producing engaging marijuana-centric media to entertain and educate stoned masses.

With discord I don't have to pay a penny and I can scroll back into the past until infinity. Not so with Slack. Slack seems to have been made by super-rich silicon valley devs for super-rich silicon valley devs.

 

Yes! This is why I also like Spectrum. It's like Discord, but it's more like a real forum/message board, where you can link to threads and discussions. Much better for archival.

 

Hello! Thanks for sharing!

Here is several more dev discord servers:

Flextype - Hybrid Content Management System
phpBB - free flat-forum bulletin board software solution
Flarum - Flarum is packed full of innovation, all wrapped up in a beautiful design forum software.
Svelte - Cybernetically enhanced web apps
Vue Land - The Progressive JavaScript Framework
Craf CMS - Craft is a flexible, user-friendly CMS for creating custom digital experiences on the web and beyond.
Statamic - Build better, easier to manage websites.
Grav - Grav is a modern open source flat-file CMS

 

Wow! Great additions! I'm happy to see PHP represented more. Thanks!

 

freeCodeCamp started an official Discord server recently to provide a place to chat while everyone is dealing with the pandemic. Here's the link:

Here's the official announcement

 

Good catch! Surprised I missed that one. Added to the list ✅ Thanks!

 

I need similar list, but for Slack.

 
 
 

These must be lit right now 🔥 been seeing a lot of svelte and tailwind discussion, will have to check them out. Thanks for the recommendation!

 

You're welcome and thanks for helping out the community~

 

Some of the links don't work like the Tailwind one. It just says link expired.
