Our philosophy & values
The octopus is a perfect representation of the existence and purpose
of this community! Octopuses are one of the most intelligent ocean
creatures, and they learn and adapt very quick.
Its symbolism pretty much encapsulates what we’re about. Selflessness,
intelligence, awareness, altruism, the ability to overcome challenging
solutions with creativity and intelligence.
P.S. the octopus is called Ton and he says hi! 👋
As a community of practice, our purpose is to develop and nurture the
members’ skills and promote continuous learning. We believe that
knowledge is most valuable when it is shared, so our community serves
as a platform for the exchange of insights, ideas, and expertise.
We motivate each other to create and share our own original content.
The Twitch channel, the blog, and the YouTube channel are our outlets
for putting out our content. Everyone is welcome to contribute.
Everything we do is open source. Our content is open source. Our
website is open source. Our projects are open source. Why? Because
reading and understanding other people’s code makes you a better
coder. Because networking and collaborating with other people make you
a better human.
If you feel like you belong, then you belong. You make the choice. We
might differ in preferences of language, framework or tools. But, what
truly binds us together is the same vigorous passion we have for
experimenting and creating things.
The value is in the variety! We are curious and ambitious experts in
multiple topics from multiple generations. Whether you're a seasoned
pro or just starting out, your opinion and everyone else’s is always
welcomed. We all have the right to voice opinions, as long as we’re
doing it in a civilized manner.
We believe that the collective power of collaboration and shared
enthusiasm drives us to new heights. We cherish the moments of
discovery, the "aha" moments, and the breakthroughs that come when
minds converge. Here, you'll find a supportive network of like-minded
individuals who share your passion for honing their coding skills and
exploring the vast realms of technology.
We understand that behind every username or profile picture is a
learner and a passionate individual. So, kindness, respect, and
altruism are the pillars that define us as the creatures we are. We
don’t step on each other’s feet, or gate-keep our ideas. It’s who we
are both inside and outside of this community. We care deeply about
each other's well-being, even if we don’t know each other personally.
We get excited about code, and want to scream out our excitement. Our
motivation is intrinsic. We like to share our findings with the rest
of the community. We like to give feedback as much as we like to get
feedback. We’re not afraid to get our hands dirty. We’re practical
creatures. We like to solve our problems using creativity and
