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
Well that's definitely the best explanation so far! Thanks Drew!
I actually have the sticker!
Love it!!. Case closed!
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 😉
I say it as “Dev-toe” in my head.
Yes, i prefer “toe” over “two”
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!
They hijacked Tonga's domain too!!
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.
.com = Commercial
.gov = Government
.net = Network
.org = Organization
.uk = United Kingdom
.ca = Canada
.us = United States
.to = Tonga
Dev Tonga. It all makes sense now.
I've always pronounced it DEV to.
