I have spent a lot of my free time participating in the IndieWeb community over the last year or so. I love the IndieWeb community. The community opened my eyes to how I can take control over my own data and publish content that matters to me on my own site. As I have worked on this website, the community has been there for support, pointing out bugs and helping me think through ideas and features. The community has an excellent body of resources for building a website, from a well-maintained wiki to an active chat where you can meet other people interested in personal websites.
I wonder what other communities are out there, particularly for developers. Since I have not been able to find many new communities through web search, I thought I would ask my readers: what web communities are you in? Where do they meet? What interests you about the community?
If I had to recommend one community for people who are interested in the web or owning their own website, the IndieWeb would be my top pick. I also love reading posts in the Hacker News community although I am not an active participant. Hacker News is a great place to find interesting links about tech and many other adjacent subjects. I'd love to branch out and see what other web communities there are on the web.
If a few people respond to my question, I will write a follow up post listing some communities that have been mentioned to me (with permission).
