I want to continue make posts about programming. More like tutorials. Medium was ok for that, but there is Dev.to. I want to ask you about advantages of this platform and how popular is it nowdays?

Hi Vladislav, you should read this and decide:
Medium Was Never Meant to Be a Part of the Developer Ecosystem

My answer would be yes :-)
Medium now charges money and thats sux
The only thing is that in dev.to you cant open a publication and have writers publish through your publication
Im not sure if im using the right terms here but i think you understand what i mean...
I'd say it's worth it if you're really trying to share knowledge. The paywall on Medium is a threat to sharing knowledge but not a threat to social media however.
I think Medium is perfectly fine for those who will opt in to the service. Medium is a larger company and has a wider consumer base. And that woks for them.
Dev.to, on the other hand, offers a forum specifically for developers of all kinds with no paywall.
Additionally, if I'm looking for information about
topic x(like your excellent
Dockerize a Node.js app connected to MongoDbarticle recently), I'm likely to find it anyway by doing a google search whether it's hosted on medium or dev.to.
my 2 cents :D
I don't see the harm in posting on both 😄
