Our philosophy & values

Why octopus? 🐙

The octopus is a perfect representation of the existence and purpose of this community! Octopuses are one of the most intelligent ocean creatures, and they learn and adapt very quick.

Its symbolism pretty much encapsulates what we’re about. Selflessness, intelligence, awareness, altruism, the ability to overcome challenging solutions with creativity and intelligence.

P.S. the octopus is called Ton and he says hi! 👋

A community of practice

As a community of practice, our purpose is to develop and nurture the members’ skills and promote continuous learning. We believe that knowledge is most valuable when it is shared, so our community serves as a platform for the exchange of insights, ideas, and expertise.

We motivate each other to create and share our own original content. The Twitch channel, the blog, and the YouTube channel are our outlets for putting out our content. Everyone is welcome to contribute.

Open Source

Everything we do is open source. Our content is open source. Our website is open source. Our projects are open source. Why? Because reading and understanding other people’s code makes you a better coder. Because networking and collaborating with other people make you a better human.


If you feel like you belong, then you belong. You make the choice. We might differ in preferences of language, framework or tools. But, what truly binds us together is the same vigorous passion we have for experimenting and creating things.


The value is in the variety! We are curious and ambitious experts in multiple topics from multiple generations. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, your opinion and everyone else’s is always welcomed. We all have the right to voice opinions, as long as we’re doing it in a civilized manner.


We believe that the collective power of collaboration and shared enthusiasm drives us to new heights. We cherish the moments of discovery, the "aha" moments, and the breakthroughs that come when minds converge. Here, you'll find a supportive network of like-minded individuals who share your passion for honing their coding skills and exploring the vast realms of technology.


We understand that behind every username or profile picture is a learner and a passionate individual. So, kindness, respect, and altruism are the pillars that define us as the creatures we are. We don’t step on each other’s feet, or gate-keep our ideas. It’s who we are both inside and outside of this community. We care deeply about each other's well-being, even if we don’t know each other personally.

Creativity & Intelligence

We get excited about code, and want to scream out our excitement. Our motivation is intrinsic. We like to share our findings with the rest of the community. We like to give feedback as much as we like to get feedback. We’re not afraid to get our hands dirty. We’re practical creatures. We like to solve our problems using creativity and intelligence.
