Aside from Twitter and Reddit, where else do developers to go chat? I've realized that I've just been in my own bubble, pounding away at my keyboard and I have not made many developer friends/buddies/communities. I have a few developer coworkers that I chat with from time to time. But where else is there for us to go to connect with one another?
Twitter contains so much noise that it's difficult to facilitate a conversation. Places like Reddit and Hacker News, to me, foster a bunch of bullies waiting to tell you that your post sucks or for moderates to delete your post because you said "I" too many times.
Are there Discord channels? Slack channels? IRC Chatrooms? (FYI: I've NEVER got a chance to learn IRC)
