What is the Udacity community? The Udacity Community is a network of students and alumni from around the world that you will have access to as a Udacity student. Our hope is that the Udacity community becomes a source of growth, encouragement, and joy for every student throughout every stage of their learning journey, starting from the day they first enter the Nanodegree classroom to graduation and beyond. Many of our most successful alums say that the Udacity community is a big part of what made their experience valuable and enjoyable--they often learned as much from their classmates as they did in the classroom! You will be communicating with your classmates, mentors and Udacity staff in your community channels. By posting in there, you will be connected to other students around the world - 180 countries and counting! You are contributing to the creation of a culture that celebrates collaborative, lifelong learning and mutual support. We hope you use these channels to freely ask and answer questions; to share advice, adversity, and accomplishments, and to feel connected and at home during your time here.
