I do not have much experience with Medium or DEV except publishing my first article on both platforms in the last few days.
I published it on Medium on the 30.05 and so far got three views, the same article I put on DEV on the 02.06 and till now got 62 reactions, 666 views, one comment, and 61 followers.
It looks like this is the right place to publish articles for developers. 😄
So much this. The way that DEV works to get information to people, doesn't discriminate against new users. It gives a fair platform that allows your voice to be heard.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
