As developers and web professionals we’ve built a community like no other. We have our own culture, our own jokes and stories, and our own ideas. The story of our community’s growth is the story of the internet—and the story of a big piece of our modern world. Aria Stewart talks about the role of community in our profession, what that really means, and some of the things that implies. Aria intends to inspire both a new passion for what we all share and a new care and caution in taking care of what we’ve built.
