Coding techologies and communities are growing day by day and
a lot of beginners struggle with the their queries, issues and bugs being answered and fixed.

I handpicked some useful coding forum communities, that might come in handy in your developer workflow, and fix the issues super quickly.

These communities include everything you might need while working as a programmer.

Most of these forums are related to web development, app development, API development, independent development, freelance development and passive income via web/app dev.

Each forum will include a direct link, a description as well as an image preview.

Thank you for the list. Can one rely on hosting platforms such as Squarespace, Wix nd Weebly too instead of coding from scratch.
