What is Community Credit?
Community Credit is a way of showing your contribution to the technology
community. Community Credit helps show off the enthusiasm and
passion you have for the success of our industry.
How do I actually get points?
You can submit points on our Point Submission
page. Simply type your name, email address, date you earned
the points and point category and they will instantly be added to your total. The points that you earn can
be seen on our Community Leaders
Will my Community Credit contributions help me get a job?
If you are an active contributor to the development community, your contributions alone will help you to get a job. From my own

How do I earn community credit?
We use the following point system:
If you are contributing to a website that has partnered with Community Credit, your
points will automatically be added. If not, you can submit your own points easily by visiting our Point Submission
Who will know that I earned credit?
You will benefit by linking to your profile showing all of the areas that you have contributed to the development community.
