Peter, without you, dev.to wouldn't be where it is today. I'm so happy you're doing this AMA so that the community has an opportunity to get to know you a bit more.
I'm curious, did you always know you wanted to be an entrepreneur?
In sixth grade we could earn fake money for presenting a current event at the beginning of class. You got to use that fake money at the end of the year to bid on candy in an auction setting. The "catch" was that you could only present one current event / per person / per day.
I started creating "ready to go" current events that I would sell right outside the classroom for 50% of the bounty. It got to the point where we were wasting so much time on these presentations that the teacher agreed to just buy me out for the entire year.
I think it was as I was eating my fill of Twizzler's and Reese's at the end-of-the-year party that I knew.
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.
