    It is a nice mini-blog, it's for free and such but

    As a mini-blog, it is a nice alternative for Medium to publish and share information about programming.

    However, the community and the organization are biased toward social justice (and they are open to it). You can read its Code of Conduct, it is so vague and politically leads (I prefer a term of service because it defines fair rules for everybody). So it alienates developers that we don't care about politics in pro of people that want to talk about any other topic such as sexuality, how women are unprivileged, and such. It even mandates to use inclusive language. Good grief.

    My main complaint is the quality of the community. It is not StackOverflow (so we don't want to ask for an answer here), and most of the top topics are clickbait, such as "how to become a rockstar developer in ... days", "100 tips to become a better programmer" (and it doesn't even talk about programming).

    Technically this "mini blog" site allows us to use markdown, and it is okay. However, the whole experience is really basic. Even the template is ugly.

  • 100 Days of Code (Next.js)
    I get stuck. A lot. Often times out of arrogance when it comes to reading documentation, a little bit of ignorance sprinkled in there. I am apart of the Learn Build Teach discord chanel, which is an awesome community to get help for all things web dev related! I will be able to ask questions there as well as other outlets like twitter or dev.to. - Source: dev.to / 3 days ago
