I've been lurking through dev forums and communities on the web since my teenage years, but up until recently I never posted. I found most online communities to be hostile and aggressive, especially towards newbies. Dev.To and my "Dev Twitter" I found were the only communities I felt comfortable sharing in. Would love to join some sort of slack or telegram channel relating to web development for jrs!

I feel you! Checked your twitter and realized there is almost no overlap so that's really interesting :P

I don't know any slack/telegram/discord group that is build 100% for beginners and not limited to a certain technology or library. If I happen to bump into one I'll let you know ๐Ÿ˜

Should we initiate with a group or channel?๐Ÿค”

Difficult question, it depends on what the purpose is. If it's getting to know others and just kind of chatting than a group will be best. If it's just sharing links and resources but no real talk it should be a channel.

I think I prefer the first if I'm honest. I'd love to chat from time to time with people that have similar interests ๐Ÿ˜Š

You won't believe what a fellow DEV just posted not to long ago ๐Ÿ˜‚

It has a ton of members for a server that has started 3 days ago. There isn't a lot of chatter though, but I guess that's a thing in most communities.
