Coding Together: How I found friends behind the screen

Hi everyone! I've been reading "Never Eat Alone" and it's really inspired me. It made me realize something important for us who love to code: you don't have to leave your computer to make friends.

I get it, we love coding. It's where we feel at home. But as much as we enjoy the quiet focus it gives us, sharing our passion with others can be just as fulfilling. That's what I found in open-source communities. It's not just about the code. It's about the people behind the code, too.

When I first contributed to an open-source project, I didn't expect much. But then, something amazing happened. People from places I'd never been to were talking to me, helping me out, and appreciating the work I was doing. And I was doing the same for them. We were a team, and soon, friends.

This is where WebCrumbs comes in. It's a project that's close to my heart because it's more than just code. It's a place where you can join in, share your ideas, and meet people who share your interests.

I want to tell you, from one coder to another, that finding friends in the tech world is possible without ever leaving your desk. And it's worth it. You'll still be doing what you love, but you'll feel a part of something bigger.

So, if you ever feel like you're coding in a bubble, come join us. You might just find a second home.

You are welcome at WebCrumbs :)
