I always found it was difficult or intimidating to join a lot of communities, especially as a new developer. However, being part of a community is so important for personal growth and mental health. On top of that so many are toxic and negative.

This led me to form gitconnected.com - It's mission to be a place where developers can share knowledge and be a positive support system for everyone involved.

That's cool :)

Avoiding toxic places, especially as a beginner, is very hard. It's very nice to see you stepped up an created your own solution. I guess imposter syndrome also plays a big part in taking the first step. Friendly communities really help to boost enough confidence to get started.
