DEV Community

DEV is a community of software developers getting together help help one another out. The software industry relies on collaboration and networked learning. We provide a place for that to happen.

DEV is built as an open source codebase, allowing anyone to inspect any line of code.

DEV was founded in 2017 by Ben Halpern, Peter Frank and Jess Lee. The company is based in Brooklyn, New York.

DEV's distributed community of thousands of developers regularly contribute issue reports, fix bugs, and build features, helping to create an increasingly valuable and self-reinforcing resource for software developers.

DEV is the fastest-growing social network for the software industry, already serving over 5 million unique visitors a month and more than 250K registered users. Based on open-source software, DEV serves programmers of all backgrounds and experience levels looking for a community experience.


DEV is harnessing the power of open source to create the world's fastest growing, most inclusive social network for developers, while realizing its vision of bringing transparency and trust to the social web. DEV members get together to publish work, participate in conversations, elevate their skills, and support each other in a positive community environment. 


DEV is backed by Mayfield, OSS Capital, Charge VC and others. The company raised $11.5M from a "Series A" financing on Nov 07, 2019. This new round brings DEV's total funding to $12.4M to date.
