The best way to connect with other Andelans is to post, react, and comment. We ask that all Andelans use the ASK principles when making any posts in the community: your post should be Actionable, Specific, Kind. Also, to help you get started, we have automatically added you to several channels, but to get the most out of this community, we highly recommend joining some more:

  • #geo- channels: Find your country and connect with other Andelans in your area.
  • #skill- channels: Join technology-specific conversations and share your knowledge.
