The growth of dev.to and its transition towards becoming a "true" community followed an interesting pathβ€”

Stage 1: Twitter account, managed by Ben.

Stage 2: fledgling platform, with a small set of contributors. The main draw was exposure via the Twitter account

Stage 3: maturing community with a wider set of contributors and meaningful on-site activity (reactions, comments, follows, etc).

I think that having a strategic plan was important, as was sticking true to our major principles (welcoming environment, performant experience, focusing hard on the major product features).
