Writing code can be a challenging vocation. It’s a lot more fun and a lot less overwhelming when you’ve got people to look up to and lean on.

A few months ago, we did an article about Hungarian developers you should follow. Now it’s time to shine the light on Poland. There are a lot of talented developers in Poland and on CodersRank.

The country is home to over 295,300 software development experts and it is considered to be one of the fastest-growing tech nations in the world.

Poland’s IT industry is expected to generate $13 billion in revenue by 2022. It’s all thanks to their developer talent which has been consistently ranked amongst the Top 5 across the globe.

Today, we’ll put the focus on Polish developers. We’ve curated a list of 10 developers who you should follow for their interesting content. Some are on CodersRank, some are not. We have bloggers, vloggers, speakers, event organizers, and more. But one thing is common in them.

All of these experts have built a solid reputation for developing and sharing quality content about all things related to coding. You may already recognize some big names but we have also included the rising stars from the development the scene.

Whether you’re just starting your programming career or you’ve been doing this for a while now, you’ll find community and inspiration from these developers.
