What do you aim to accomplish on dev? are you here for the tutorials? career advice? are you hoping to build connections with people in the tech industry or are you here to build a following? Or maybe you're just here for fun ? 😃

I think I joined Dev more on the learning end than the contributing end — I don't think I'm that good yet to share anything helpful, so I use Dev as a platform to learn more about the tech world — getting to know insights, opinions, and how-tos and contributing to them by reacting or commenting!

In a way, maybe it's networking, getting to meet up with other developers in one place. To me, though, it's a learning journey that keeps exciting with every post I read!

Dev is a great community to learn from others. But I disagree with your assumption that you're not good enough to share anything helpful. Don't underestimate yourself. Every 'pro' was a beginner once. Share what you know, and people will appreciate it.

I think is like Twitter of the dev world, but with more comprehensive 'tweet' of course. I can do so many stuff here, when I want to learn, when I want to discuss, when I want my opinion to be heard even when I just want to read something. Feel like there always something new and organic here.

True. It also recently occurred to me that dev has everything that makes tech Twitter great, only its not as limiting in terms of content size/type.

Definitely learning with fun from others. Being a part of community makes me feel like a real developer which i am not :)
