Do you plan to move DEV away from open source in the near future?
Or any plans to put DEV behind a paywall?

No and no.

DEV will always be open source and we'll never have a paywall.

We have several monetization paths, some already happening through site features and tasteful partnerships and the rest center around our future as a commercial open source company.

We can't wait to make progress in pushing open source social software together and building a sustainable business around servicing and hosting our more decentralized open source initiatives.
