Hey Ben! Thanks for doing this. I've followed everyone recommended so far. Looking forward to more recommendations. As for myself, I'm currently trying to write daily, and motivate other devs to do that same. I'm very beginner level content, nothing too heavy. Would love to connect with other Dev.to(ers) and talk about current projects, goals, etc. :)


I'll start with four great devs this week.

Follow @rpalo , who has been an incredibly consistent contributor. He writes about Python, Ruby, bash and general development. Great community member.

Follow @loganmeetsworld , who has written several of the site's most popular posts, including the fascinating Homographs, Attack!.

Follow me if you're excited about what we're building at dev.to because that's mostly what I talk about but it's kind of hard to avoid me on-platform. 😄

by the way

@ Mentioning the user and using the tag ({% user ben %}), as I have, is a good format. But feel free to use any format you like.


Follow Jeff Kreeftmeijer, Phil Nash, and/or Michael Kohl for great Ruby/Rails posts!

Developer is the next blue collar job

People who generally do not have a college education, and go straight into a physical, or modest working-class job after high school.
