Joining#

Join the Discord channel by using this link.

When you hop into a channel, introduce yourself! We'd love to hear about who you are and what you're working on. So I might say:

"Hey everyone! I'm Nate, the founder of newline. I'm working on a React/Next.js app for helping programmers be better at their jobs."

Asking Questions#

The best way to get help is to create a minimum-reproducible example. That means some sort of code sandbox (Codepen, StackBlitz, jsbin, etc.) that runs your complete example and shows the bug. It takes a little bit longer to create this, but it's worth the effort if you want help.

This is a great post on how to ask coding questions online.
