WebWide works in an online group setting, so there are no scheduled, regular meetings. Members interact on the Discord group, where you can find several channels to discuss different topics you may be interested in.
You can join however many channels you want to. There are channels specific to discuss web development and design topics and to share knowledge. But there are also channels to network and to make friends! You can join certain channels to introduce yourself when you are a new member, and other channels to share hobbies and personal interests.
This creates a tight-knit community of members who know and support each other. The community even has a channel where you, with a single command, contribute to funding tree planting via Ecologi platform.
You can socialize with WebWide's members on the Discord group. The community is for web developers and designers that want to share knowledge and grow in their professional career, but it's also filled with friendly people that want to connect.
There are dedicated channels to networking. For example, when you are a new member the first step is to introduce yourself in a specific channel for doing so. There, you can tell the community a little bit about yourself and the projects you are working on.
Besides that channel, you can socialize in other channels dedicated to making friends. For example, there is a channel called "Lounge", where members chat about anything they want -it's the place to have casual chit-chats and getting to know the rest of the group.
You have also a space to self-promote your brand or any project you are working on. This channel allows you to meet other people working on something similar to you, expanding your professional network, and making valuable connections!
