I know the post is old but I really know great developers in my country who don't have the English skills needed to read a full post on dev.to. I really believe it is an essential skill, but to say that "you should not venture to be a dev if you lack that very basic understanding of the language" seems very wrong.
That sentence was admittedly taking things a bit far, but I stand by my point that English in an essentially skill for a developer that should be learned sooner rather than later.
