I'd recommend following a group we (by which I mean myself mostly) have dubbed the #DevDaemons for their overall strong content on this site. Plus the name just sounds cool 😛

There are likely people who will be added to this group later. Regardless, follow them!

One of my favorite recent follows is @kathyra_ -- I've learned so much from her, plus she's hilarious.

@ananyaneogi obviously crushed it with her last post which is sitting at #2 all time, but look at her backlog. She's an awesome frontend writer and great community member.

So this is a weird thing to say, but I actually follow fewer people so they don't take over my feed and I can find new people! That being said, @karaluton has really great stuff :)

I like to use the "Latest" feature on the homepage for this purpose! There's always something great to be found

It's really crazy to me how rare it is to find uninteresting or garbage content on Dev; on Hacker News or Reddit or basically any other site with an any-user-can-post-stuff model, sorting by most-recently-submitted is a danger zone, or at least a great way to spend hours pushing through sludge to find anything worthwhile, but on Dev I use it all the time to find new authors. Maybe this is just because Dev is relatively young and has only really blown up pretty recently, but I like to think it has more to do with the community here

Give Amberley Romo a follow if you aren't already, she's good people :).

Max got my others in his post.

I'm glad we both decided to not mention Max as a recommended follow because he stole a lot of the good answers.

Right,my turn.

She's already been mentioned like a million times and we've all ready at least 4 of her articles, so if you don't already go follow Helen Anderson.

Not only does Andrew know 👏 his 👏 sh!t 👏 when it comes to AWS, but his constant use of emoji's is something I'm weak to.

Alan Hylands, along with Helen, is the reason why I'm writing here. His articles on tackling urgent culture are the catalyst for my Crunch and Burnout articles.

One of my favorites was @mudasobwa , but he disappeared/got banned, not entirely sure what really happened.

Probably can't comment on the status of whether someone is currently suspended, but yes, it's a shame because he was a great contributor in many ways.
