Earning Credit in the Developer Community

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 personal experience in the IT Community, both as a developer and one who hires developers, I can tell you that there is no better testimonal to your skills than the contributions that you have made in your own free time. In addition, you can really show off your stuff by demonstrating it to your fellow developers. Seeing is believing, as they say. Besides, what a better way to make a new contact than to help somebody solve a problem. Community credit simply highllights your contributions and is one way of seperating yourself from the crowd and showing that you are a serious professional.


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 page.

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.
