Link to join the server: Scaler Discord Community

If you want to grow as a developer, I can't over-emphasize the benefits of joining a developer community. There are many advantages, from peer-programming to sharing knowledge, mentorship, sharing support, sharing tools, code reviews, answering questions, and much more.

Communities are usually built on shared struggles of individuals learning in a particular region, and the goals of each community differ per the individual's collective needs.

Over the years, the developer communities have grown across the world with different goals and missions but still with the general aim of providing a platform for developers to learn, interact, share ideas, support each other and grow.

Today we are going to look at one such Developer community called Scaler Community

What is Scaler:

This also opens up chances to find mentors in your field or potentially meet developers with similar interests willing to collaborate with you on projects.

4. Expand your areas of expertise

When you join Scaler community you come across people with different backgrounds and expertise. As a result, you’re constantly being exposed to topics and discussions that may not be directly related to your field of interest.

Just by being active in Scaler, you can pick up technical terms and knowledge relating to software development outside your direct area of expertise.

5. Get Recognition or Exposure

No good deed or positive contribution made by any individual ever goes unnoticed. Communities are all about learning, sharing, and growing together. Industry experts and many founders of various companies often come to community events.
