As you might know, I've been highlighting some of the early Forems joining the network of late over the last few weeks in this series.
I also highlighted Development Hackers last week, but I wanted to bring them up again in the context of Earth Day.
Environmental justice is a matter of awareness and impact, and I think these two spaces are absolutely providing this.
While there is currently no easy and sweeping way to fix the health of our planet, the decisions we make as software developers are critical to a sustainable environment. We are a group capable of discovering and solving pressing problems like no other — especially if we commit to applying ourselves on an ongoing basis. Today, I'll be spending some time in both of these communities to fully immerse myself in their overlapping mission statements of using the power of software to help our ailing planet. I invite you to join me by clicking the links above and setting up accounts on both Forest and Development Hackers.
One last thing. You’ll notice "Sign up with Forem" as an option on these Forems. This is a service we now offer to most seamlessly navigate the ecosystem and manage your identity. We want you to be able to bring your full self without having to bring your full data, so making this distributed ecosystem as straightforward as possible in the long run is really important. Create a Forem account and connect it with your Forem.dev account via your settings. 🙂
