Keeping up with any language community can be tough, especially when you're just starting out. Writing software is a challenging pursuit, but like all such challenges it's a lot more fun with friends.

We've collected some of the developers we like to follow on Twitter who frequently work with JavaScript, Node.js, and especially React, the frontend JavaScript framework that has experienced explosive growth over the last few years.

No matter where you are in your career, we hope you'll find inspiration and community from this short list of some of our favorite JavaScript developers.
