Community Testimonials

"What I love about DevRant is that it doesn't only serve me as a relatable, sometimes funny as hell timeline. But I also learn small bits and pieces from all around it amidst the rants."
"I was pretty alone with my dev stuffs and especially with my linux/security/privacy passion but through this platform I can say I've found friends with the exact same interests and although they live all over the world, it's awesome to finally feel at home somewhere!"
"I fucking love devrant. fuck. This is a new job too, all the support here seeing the new upvotes every time I open the app makes me smile and just remember why I love making stuff"
