re: Medium Was Never Meant to Be a Part of the Developer Ecosystem VIEW POST


Developers truly use platforms like Medium (or DEV, or the blogosphere) in ways similar to how we use Stack Overflow, GitHub, docs sites, etc. We go there for answers, we go there to take part, we go there to get our jobs done. We get our jobs done by a) Googling to solve our problems, b) Hanging out and upping our skills by immersing ourselves in the conversation or being a fly on the wall to intelligent conversations, and c) Establishing a reputation, making connections, discovering job opportunities, etc.

I love this excerpt, it really speaks to what i do most of the time on the internet (when in developer mode), i even use discord for answers now as its the modern IRC chat that i never had being a Gen-Zer
