In March of 2005, two college roommates started work on a new website. They wanted to create a place where people could share links and discuss their interests. Six months later, Reddit was born. Today, it’s one of the most popular websites on the internet.
Over the last decade, Reddit has become more than just a link-sharing site. It’s now a platform for communities of all types—including many programming-related ones.
If you want to learn programming, or improve your skills, there’s no shortage of subreddits (Reddit communities) that can help you out.
Here are some of the best programming subreddits:
/r/learnprogramming– As the name suggests, this is an excellent subreddit for learning programming. The community is very friendly and welcoming to beginners, and there are always people around to answer questions and give advice.
/r/programming– This is a general programming subreddit with a discussion on everything from coding languages to software engineering principles. It’s also great for keeping up with the latest industry news.
/r/coding– Another general programming subreddit with discussion on various coding topics. This one is slightly less serious than /r/programming, but still contains plenty of useful information.
