  • Agreed with others on taking your time / focusing on quality
  • Don't be afraid to ask questions
  • Do research on what others have written on the topic, link to other sources or opinions
  • Share your posts on social media etc. (use tag #DEVCommunity)

Add a cover image, have good grammar (use Grammarly), and have up to 4 tags.

Grammarly would definitely be helpful, considering that a large number of users here are non-native English speakers. Thanks!
