Ran into a devRant user at a random bar in NYC last night. Super cool meeting you in the wild!

    They must have been very large if you could run in them

    @Codex404 he said he was a software engineer, so I mention I built a community of software engineers called devRant. He was like "wait, what? Like you made devRant?" I said "Yeah, me and my buddy. Have you heard of devRant?" He goes "yeah, I just read, don't post, but man, this is crazy meeting one of the creator of devRant like this." I show him a photo of our new super secret duck prototype then he offers to buy me a drink and I accept.

    Definitely a lot more of us out there than you think. The job I'm at now, one of the devs that interviewed me later admitted that he was a devRant user. Had that happen at a different interview as well. It's a small world!

    @trogus super secret duck prototype?

    We should just come up with a secret handshake or something

    @tnuhb
    My suggestion: tilt your head sideways and make the devRant logo with your face :/

    @trogus is that a thing, openly discussing devRant at work? I've never mentioned it towards colleagues, due to not knowing what the consequences of ranting might be.
    Also: now you've got me super hyped about that new secret feature thing :D

    @eeee not a bad idea. Although you probably would look psychotic to those who didn't know what you were doing, which actually makes the idea even better.

    @tnuhb exactly!

    It's always a pleasure to meet people who use your platform, knowing they are real and you're doing work that makes real people happy 😊

    @fullsack there was one a year or two ago where I met @trogus and @dfox, among others. I think we are due for another one!

    Not likely for poor old me. Not many real developers down under :( only university graduates who think they are senior developers 18 months down the track
