Discussion on: How can we make CodeNewbie better?

I can't seem to tell the difference between the purpose of Dev.to and Codenewbie. It seems to me that Codenewbie is just a second version of Dev, content-wise it's all similar no separating themes. Also, the community in Dev.to is already great enough, why should we move to Codenewbie?

Let me ask you this: Are you a "newbie" - or someone who writes content specifically for people who are just starting out on their code journey?

In the circumstance that you gave, I would fall closer to the second category.

I just pose that - generally. If people aren't in one of those two categories - then maybe this forum isn't the right forum for those people.

IMHO, if that's the case then I worry the content here may not be as extensive as the ones on Dev.to, thus the community might end up writing the same articles over and over.

Is it a good thing? Probably. I can't say but I feel that a community at least has to grow at some point.

I also see the environment in Dev already conclusive enough for newbies to have a discussion. People in these two forums are very welcoming overall (I am saying this according to my experience).

What I do agree about your point however is to be able to share your learning journies here. The content on this site can revolve more around learning goals to help newbies know what to learn.
