Hi guys!

Great blogging site for devs. I am only on day 6 posting here, but so far I really like your platform. Beats medium hands down!

Liquid error: internal

My bag of tricks is here :)

I too thought of dev.to as a kind-of open-source Medium alternative after I read about the site. Although, I like GitHub's "sponsor me" feature, which is kind of what Medium offers too. Except, they have the forced reading throttling they do unless you are a subscriber.

oh, I use Medium too, mostly for clipping my tech reads (medium.com/@TarasNovak/has-recomme...).

Sponsor me is an interesting feature. However, in my experience most devs just skim articles or try new tools & rarely hit that sponsor button.

You'd be lucky if they ⭐️ your repo || buy you a cup of coffee to sponsor your passion. For example, my vscode Data Preview 🈸 extension has over 23K installs & I only had 3 devs buy me a ☕️ on ko-fi.com/dataPixy :)

I started blogging here just to share what makes my 💖 tick ...

well, that's the price of OSS I guess :)

You can actually clear cookies and throttling goes off. No subscription, no pain :/

Thanks! I am up over 1K followers now after 12 days on dev.to.

Devs seem to really like my VSCode Data Preview 🈸 extension.

Latest post on that data tool is here:
