Testimonials

What it means to be part of this community in the members' own words


Started contributing and building my GitHub profile and already got a job interview request based on my GitHub activity. So I really appreciate what you do here!


EddieHub is like a family to me! We get really warm welcomes here! We get all our issues solved by each others' #help :) We get our 🟩 treats here! EddieHub is awesome. By Awesome I mean Awesome! It is a 10/5 rating!


It's everything anyone could ever ask for in a community. Wholesome, Encouraging, Open Source and everything nice! Best thing happened in 2020. I'll be always thankful to this community and keep contributing here. It's beyond rating of 5 stars. 3000/5 


EddiehubCommunity for me was the start of open source development 🟩 . As a designer, I've come across many software developers within the community that is always very helpful and enthusiastic about that green square. I didn't realize why it was so important at first. But I can finally say why. In the community, they don't just help each other when they are stuck with something. They collaborate on projects, sharing knowledge and experience with each other every day, they help to build each other's future so to speak. Which is amazing to see. Not only do they geek out 🤓 , but they also show support for people in their exams. This is why I enjoy spending time in the community.


This is just an awesome community. This is the first community I have seen which puts collaboration first than the code. Collaborative people make a collaborative community and EddieHub is a perfect example of it 😄. I can't rate this community on the scale because priceless things can't be quantified ❤️


EddieHub is a great place to catalyse growth in both personal and development spheres. The community really helps you get accustomed to social coding, which is an essential skill. Contributing with EddieHub has taught me how to write better issues and how to better explain things, by giving enough context.

The community is highly diverse and consists of developers ranging from experts to people who just started programming, giving you an ideal place to ask for help, reviews and ideas. Almost everyone in the community is ready to jump in and help.

The community also inculcates better speech tone and wiser use of words, due to the presence of Alex.js on the discord bot, which really trains you to communicate better and use more inclusive vocabulary.
