how did you get it and through code or any other mode?
and did you get 25USD or something different?

They gave a code for 25USD equivalent to be used in Dev shop. Can buy anything upto $25 (shirt, mug, sticker, beanie) but shipping is shown as extra (except for the Dev basic Tshirt which shows international shipping as Free).

It makes me want to migrate to using lobste.rs instead of dev.to with this strange sponsored contest spam in the main news feed.
