Workals is a community project aimed at helping software engineers find mentors, jobs, and coding buddies. It focuses mainly on programmers who are early in their careers but is open to all.
Workals is open to all software engineers regardless of their level of experience, location, or tech stack. If you're looking to become a mentor or work collaboratively with others, this is for you. If you're a tech recruiter who is hiring or who wants to help the community become better at finding jobs, interviewing, or who generally wants to share work-related knowledge, you are very welcome.
All you have to do is join our Discord community. As soon as you register you will receive a message with a list of channels and what to expect from each of them.
Workals is self-directed and built to give you the flexibility and freedom to find what's needed to build your career. Specifically, if you're working on a project and looking for buddies to work with or to hold you accountable, you can post a message in #code-buddy. If you're looking for a mentor, you could post a message in #looking-for-a-mentor or browse engineers or recruiters in #mentors. You can also message people directly if that's easier, or message us and we will make an introduction.
There are quite a few features we've built already which we're going to announce in the group, but you can also request any new features or share ideas in #to-build. This is very new so it's constantly evolving but the aim is to eventually give the community the freedom to build their own tools and features on top of the existing stuff.
