How to join EddieHub

If you are looking for an inclusive and diverse tech community, which promotes collaboration first and code second this is the place for you. Here you can accelerate your career and grow your network no matter what stage of the tech journey or level you are. We are proud to have members who have only recently taken their first steps in tech, to seasoned engineers with decades of experience.  


We are not just comprised of “hardcore coders”; but we have UX designers, Devops, testers, technical writers, bloggers and YouTubers in our community. 


Our aim is to create a safe space where anyone can bring their ideas and questions forward. We have the opposite of the "bro culture" found in other communities. At EddieHub we encourage not only the technical development of our community members, but also their personal development. We have seen some of our members go from not feeling confident speaking in our monthly Community Call, to live streaming in their own YouTube channels. We also advocate work/life balance - taking rest and not glamourising work burnout.


We want to ensure that everyone feels safe and respected during their time in EddieHub and for this reason we have a code of conduct at http://coc.eddiehub.org.

You might see EddieBot: this is our Open Source bot written by the community to help us be inclusive and ensure that the server is a safe place for all. 


Why might you come across EddieBot? At EddieHub we are passionate about moving away from gender favouring, polarising, race related, religion inconsiderate or other unequal phrasing. Therefore if you use terms such as “Hi Guys”, then EddieBot responds with a notification highlighting that this is not inclusive language and will suggest alternatives.  

Take your time to go through the projects and familiarise yourself with them, so you can find one or more that interests you.  


We welcome any contributions no matter how small! A contribution is not just about code changes, but also any improvements that adds value.  This could be fixing a typo or coming up with ideas on how the project can be improved.

There are other ways to keep in touch with the community, by subscribing to the EddieHub NewsletterEddie’s YouTube channel and of course the EddieHub Blog page for more great content.  


EddieHub looks forward to welcoming and collaborating with you!
