Steve Wilhite the creator of GIF says it with a soft G. Like Jif, the peanut butter.

I've always called this site "dev too", I don't even mention the "dot". (I've never said it out loud. Just my in-my-head voice.) Your post gives me the opportunity to update my mental model.

 

If I remember correctly, Ben said it was short for Dev.together so I would imagine that means that "Dev dot too" is correct

 
 

Ben refers to it as DEV in emails, so I always just yell "DEV" at the top of my lungs.

 

I used to pronounce Aristotelian like ArisTOTelian instead of AristoTELian when arguing philosophy in college. One day someone with a PhD corrected me and I realized I had been saying it wrong in front of people that probably knew better for some time. I was in my 20s, young, intellectual and sometimes pretentious. I was mortified.

 

That's an amazing example. Here's to being slightly older and somewhat less pretentious 😉

 
 
 

Dev-toe as in 🦶?

Oh man that option never crossed my mind!

 

It’s definitely not Dev Dot Tee-Oh — that’s the Developer community in #toronto!

 
 

I just say "DEV" — if I'm giving someone the URL than I say "DEV dot Tee Oh"

 

glad I found someone else in the dev dot to camp..!

 

We dev dot to-ers have to stick together 😉

 

I pronounce it all as a single word mushed together like dev-toe. Like the thing people step on to get developers to change course.
