It seems good for building network effects that DEV is starting with a concentrated topic area.
However, I now feel a bit mislead by this HeavyBit article, which was pushing DEV.to as already a destination for all developer topics, ready to immediately replace Hacker News and Reddit (and better because of better moderation / code of conduct / etc).
I hope to see this community grow in areas like containers, OS, and systems programming.
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.
