There's another thing I like about dev.to is it doesn't have an "echo chamber" effect. I don't see posts in my feed just because someone I follow liked it. I get quite disenfranchised from using Medium or Quora sometimes because my feed is filled with liked posts from a few very active people I follow, and I don't get new perspectives.
