The complete list of 30 Dev.to badges πŸ… and how to catch them all (almost)

swissgreg profile image SwissGreg ・Updated on ・7 min read

As a new Dev.to user and collectible fan, the first moment I found out about the badges, I knew I want to collect them ALL!

I found a list of them on https://dev.to/badges but decided to make it more friendly to new users (and added a few words on how to get each of them)

Unfortunately not every badge is attainable anymore πŸ˜”

Complete list of existing 30 Dev.to badges:

Top 7 Badge

  1. Top 7 Badge - "Awarded for having at least one post featured in the weekly "must-reads" list at any point. πŸ™Œ" - you need a great post that gets cherry-picked (πŸ’) by the Dev.to's 'must-read' list curators.

Wow neat!

For everybody's info we do plan on adding more technology badges to the ones we have. We picked some popular tags to start.

Likely everyone is seeing badges they feel are missing.

We have a few other badges coming too.

And the Pusher badges cannot be achieved because it was a one time contest. Very rare πŸ˜„

We're really interested in doing more contests and other one-time things like this, just haven't gotten around to it!

But yes, nobody will be able to collect everything. We may want to come up with a way to distinguish these types of badges.

P.S. we have a new badge page, not yet totally finalized in design...
