Sure:

  • dev.to - is a community for developers. It's powered by Forem(it's like WordPress but for communities).
  • forem.dev - is basically about that Forem engine - updates, feature announcements, ideas discussions etc.

As far as options for self-hosting Forems, I personally like DigitalOcean, but all of these will be fine.

If you run into any problems getting set up, come back here and make a post seeking help.

And then once you get up and running, poke around admin, look to get properly configured, and then again, come back here if you want more help.

If you get stuck anywhere please don't hesitate to come back to forem.dev or reach out to hello@forem.com for our help! Once you're fully up and running it will all be about keeping up with community moderation and making it the best Forem you can.

โ€ฆ I see youโ€™re getting up and running on Forem Cloud, which is definitely the way to go. Good luck getting up and running, definitely come back to ask for feedback and ideas here. ๐Ÿ˜…

Hey, Ritu from DevGraph ๐Ÿ‘‹

Excited to be part of forem.dev. I'm impressed with dev.to community, options to express ourselves and the quality of content available for our disposal.

Want to be part of forem too and add value to the users here and want to add value to myself as well. Thanks :)

Hey everyone! Iโ€™m a UI/UX Designer and Frontend Developer. Just joined forem after months of using DEV to write about musings on tech, society, and my own learning path! I think itโ€™s about time I apply my skills to contribute to open source and see what the rage is about! Great to be here โ˜บ๏ธ

Resurrecting this thread to say "Hola, I'm Ella from the Forem Team ๐Ÿ‘‹"

Some of y'all will know me from other Forems (my "big intro" is on DEV), but for those who don't, it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance and I hope that we'll get to know each other better in the near future!

Hello! I've been working on a handsfree visual coding platform to help people who can't use a computer at all become integrated into Tech (of which these people are typically 100% excluded from)

I joined here because the Dev.to community inspires me, and I'd like to try and kickstart a similar community for people who code with assistive tech (not necessarily with just my tool). Also, I'd like to get involved with any of the accessibility features of forem both to learn and contribute!

Hello! I'm a Linux and FOSS enthusiast; previously had heavy involvement in the Minetest modding scene, and run the talks at my local LUG.

I've had blogs here and there all over the place, some self-hosted (most now derelict ๐Ÿ˜“); Dev.to has been a great experience so far for my interests - hopefully Forem will be coziest project I'll be looking at for some time ๐Ÿ˜Š

Main skills are Linux (obvs), Python (v good level) and Bash scripting (near-expert ๐Ÿ˜…).

I'm mainly interested in self-hosting on *nix platforms, and I look forward to feeding back any deployment improvements to Forem to make it just That Much Easier ๐Ÿ˜„
