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!

📢 #3 Charts 📈 🈸 📊 in VSCode

I too thought of
dev.toas 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 ...
Yh. But only 3 devs
well, that's the price of OSS I guess :)
Pretty neat indeed
You can actually clear cookies and throttling goes off. No subscription, no pain :/
You got me at "Beats medium hands down!".
Welcome to DEV!
Wow, this is great!
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:

this is awesome!
nice article...! :)
Hola a todos, es un gusto participar en esta comunidad. Por muchos años desarrolle aplicaciones con Deplhi y ahora estoy incursionando en .net para aplicaciones web api.
Aquí encontré respuestas a mis dudas. Espero poder aportar algo también.
Aunque puedo leer textos en inglés, me cuesta escribir en ese idioma, por eso mi presentación es en español.
Hola Andres. Soy todo lo contrario, apenas puedo leer español y me cuesta mucho más escribirlo. Pero, me alegra verte publicando aquí.
It would be awesome to see an inline translate service for articles and comments!
Hola, Eric. Gracias por venir! A mi me gusta la idea de ver un servicio de traducir para los articulos. Igual como tu, yo acaba de llegar aqui, y me parece es un buen lugar.
Nos vemos y much gusto!
A little rusty on the Spanish but that was cool.
Hola Andrés! Saludos desde Argentina, ésta plataforma es hermosa, bienvenido!
I have been busy in the university lab doing code and having fun till I realized I had to join people who do what I like doing.
Hoping to enjoy myself in this community.
Btw, I do both hardware and software development
Welcome to the jungle, man! Glad someone else likes hardware too. I'm convinced computer parts are Legos for adults.
I like that, computer parts are like legos for adults!
That would be me for sure.
Hardware is the most incredible piece in the computer game.
I just like it
🖖 best of luck
I'm three weeks into the software engineering program at Flatiron School and just posted my first blog.
I'm excited to be more involved in the engineering community here on Dev and to read lots of interesting articles :)
Welcome Megan. I just joined the community!
Thanks Mauro! Glad to hear it! Welcome to you too then :)
Software engineering seemed like a big monster to me at the start of my education so I decided to focus on web instead. What's one of the things you like about it?
Hi Grinny! I agree it can be very daunting but I really am enjoying back end so far! Web is great too but maybe you could give it a try and you'll see it isn't so bad :)
Nice! SE is a great subject. You're gonna love it!
Thanks! :) What has been your experience so far?
Well, from the perspective of career there is a lot of well paid jobs around the world for all levels of knowledge. On a personal basis I love the ability to understand both software and hardware - the latter is more for CE than SE though - and the flexibility to switch from one industry to another without too much effort.
There's a lot of work to do in order to become a good SE and basically you'll never stop studying new stuff but that's the beauty of it, isn't it? :)
Hellooo! My name is Jordan and I'm and student of the university of Kent in England. I'm a bit new to this place as I only found out about this hidden gem about a week ago. I can't wait to learn from all of you and read all the great posts y'all have written. Currently I'm working part-time as a Ruby Developer at a great company. So if any of you guys know of any good posts or tips on Ruby or Rails feel free to send them my way.
Gotta love some RoR!
Hi and welcome Jordan! Maybe you can write some tutorial on Ruby, or data structures implementation... just an idea, cheers!
Hello fellow Jordan,
Thats a great idea. I was also thinking about writing some casual discussion based posts like about the challenges computer science students face in this ever changing world of technology.
Digging Ruby and RoR. I've only just dipped my toes into them but definitely like it so far.
It’s great and so simple to use.
It’s was the first MVC framework I’d ever used. I much prefer it to the one we use for our university assignments (codeigniter in PHP).
Hello all, was listening to the stack overflow podcast heard about this place thought I'd check it out.
I'm an old beginner. Got my Comp Sci degree 19 years ago, but have been working various levels of tech support and ops until now. I'm a beginner again, doing front end development. ... and I'm terrified :p
Hello goodlight7! I am a new face in this community as you are. Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I try to identify the things I don't know and revise/update my learning path. That usually helps me :)
The podcast brought me here too! I love the stack podcast a lot and it’s good to see I’m not the only one!
Hey. I'm in the same boat. Old beginner starting my Blockchain Dev journey. Excited and nervous at the same time.
I'm glad that I found this community. Currently, I’m learning React, and I’ve been reading some interesting and inspiring articles from the community. And I hope to share my journey soon
Awesome mandy and welcome! In addition to React, be sure to keep tabs on Angular and Vue as they evolve. I have really come to enjoy Ionic's open source StencilJS library that can target all three as well as standard web components.
Perfect, thank you so much Eric. Definitely going to check out StencilJS library :))
Hi Mandy! Welcome!
I am happy to have stumbled on this community after reading "Automated Style Guides for REST, GraphQL and gRPC".
I starred the
dev.toGitHub repo shortly after reading the "About" section.
I am wishing for ubiquitous hash tags across all engineering platforms as standard
#301so that authors and readers alike could opt-in to their own preferred level of expertise.
Welcome, Eric! Your name sounds familiar.. I think I may have seen you present at CF Summit this year!
You would be correct @downey . Great to see you here. Crazy odds! ... no
@mentionsuggest-as-you-type feature yet
Hi man! I'm studying CS too, but just beginning, it's a lovely field for me :)
Hi, Good luck with the transition.
I used to be a very skilled programmer a long time ago. For some crazy reason I lost interest in developing and went to try different stuff in other areas. After 6 years I felt really sorry for my bad decision and now I'm trying to make up for lost time. I'm astonished about how technologies have evolved in the past years and how many exciting things are there to learn.
So I'm back to development and very happy about it.
Programming is like cycling, you never really forget it once you learn it. Welcome! 😃
I got here through the Stack Overflow podcast since I am about to attend a bootcamp and the title 'You graduated from coding bootcamp, Now what?' grabbed my attention. Just trying to cram as much stuff in my head as possible. Cheers!
Hahaha...sounds like myself. Enjoy your BootCamp!!!
Hello! My name is Kylee Webb, I'm in my last year at San Diego State University studying to receive a Bachelors in Computer Science. I'm currently interning as a Software Engineer at FSI and I look forward to learning and writing for this dev group!
Welcome to DEV!
I'm studying computer software engineering and in my first semester doing projects in firebase. I found this platform where I can find people like me in software coding and be connected and make coding fun.
Hi guys, been looking for a cool place to chat to fellow devs, and this looks way better than other places I've tried. I'm a final year Computer Science student at Durham Uni, and I'm particularly interested in cyber security :)
