TL;DR

Do you prefer casual or super technical articles?

Let me know

I started a few weeks ago to write in this network and I already feel at home.

I usually like to write about JavaScript, React, Redux and, soon, even Rust.

I would like to be able to write something that you all can enjoy without being bored or confused.

Write in the comments what you think about and leave a πŸ¦„!

Do you prefer casual or super technical articles?

I like both, I feel DEV has a good mixture of them. Casual for experienced people and for beginners, super technical for beginners and former beginners :D

All the combinations.

I think the best strategy is to write about what you'd like to write about πŸš€

Maybe you could find a way to join your passion for performance, frontend dev and Rust and produce an article 🀣

You just gave me the best advice ever! Thanks 😁

 

I really love technical articles, specially the ones about embedded or low level systems (something that seems to be not so common here).

I feel like DEV is 50/50 when it comes to technical and lifestyle articles, but most technical ones tend to be solely about webdev or related technologies.

 

Would it be a good trade off if I write some articles about Rust? Well, as you know, I am a web dev. But I find that Rust is good choice to have low level superpowers and it has great tools for NodeJs or Web Assembly integrations. How does it sound to you?

 

I'm not a fan of Rust myself, but I'd love to see someone bringing systems programming here, it'd be a great to see a change of pace for DEV.

Bonus points if you manage to speedup something you have, or do actual bare metal programming.

I tried to speedup something at work that used to be really slow. We passed from 130 seconds to under 1 second doing the same exact operations.

The first solution was a Javascript library and the second was a library that I created with Neon CLI with its core written in Rust.

Amazing

 

"It depends". =)

I can read super technical articles if it's a tech stack I'm familiar with. Everyone has different backgrounds and skill levels so no matter what you're going to lose some people and bore others.

I tend to browse dev.to during my commute (on the subway- I would never read while driving) so shorter, dense pieces are more pleasant than wading through verbose prose. But I'd imagine people that visit from a PC while compiling or running tests would prefer the latter.

My suggestion? Post what you enjoy writing and/or what you'd like to read.

 

I would like to read more about javascript, coming from the .net world, I have found this language fascinating.

 

Are there any topic in particular you would read about soon?

 

Prototypes please, some examples would be nice.
Thanks πŸ‘Œ
