Reaching first 100 followers on DEV 🎉🚀

First of all, thanks to the Dev community for giving feedback on my posts and appreciating my content.

How it started

I always had a thing for writing. I had been writing Medium blogs about my travel for some time now. It brings me joy to share and express myself through words.

During my college, I made a YouTube channel and posted tutorials about CPU simulators & assembly programming. It made me realize that I love to teach. Last December, when I checked, my channel reached 300 subscribers, and I thought, let's continue doing what I like.

I thought this year let me start contributing to the Dev Community and resume making YouTube videos. So during this New Year's long weekend, I re-branded my YouTube channel and created a Dev account.

I've posted two articles on Dev and received more than 2k views with 150+ reactions and gained 100+ followers.

Where it's headed

I've been a developer for four years now. Although I have a CS degree, I consider myself a self-taught engineer. I've grown so much in my career that at the age of 22, I'm an Eng. manager with five direct reports. I feel my experience will be a lot helpful for the community.

I plan to continue writing and making videos at least once per week. It would be an achievement to keep this going for a year.


  1. Improve my writing and speaking skills.
  2. Create content that I can be proud of
  3. Deliver one Dev post and a YouTube video per week.
  4. Earn the 4/8/16 week streak badges from Dev.

I hope you enjoyed reading this article as much as I enjoyed writing it!
