This is so great seeing another use case for Forem. You're doing an awesome work and doing it fast!
My question is what's going to be with dev.to? I guess your focus now is to build Forem and to spread the word around and onboarding new customers.

Our focus with dev.to is really to leverage the technical/product momentum of forem and make dev.to that much better. We're working hard to improve the algorithm in general and dev.to will benefit the most from it.

We are looking for opportunities to do more in the dev space in that dev.to doesn't have to gobble up all the dev-related content. Hopefully there will be more specialized areas. But we still have a dedicated community team for dev.to and a renewed capacity to focus on some product enhancements for the platform specifically.

All Forems will have certain types of functionality to help grow and foster the whole Forem ecosystem, but dev.to is first-and-foremost focused on usefulness for devs and community inclusion and safety. It's its own thing with its own dedicated team members, and Forem the ecosystem won't overly encroach on any individual Forem.
