Jan 13: DEV Daily Discovery

Hey folks!

I want to try something new.

Please make a comment to this thread with a DEV post that you think deserves to be read more broadly. If it's your own post that's fine.

It could be recent, or it could be classic.

And then read through the thread and ❤️ posts where you like. I'm hoping that the wisdom of the crowds can help unearth some great content every day.

The feed already works this way, but I think this could be a fun way to complement the feed for a different kind of discovery.

Use the post's link liquid tag to display it fully, i.e.:

{% link %}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And feel free to add why you want to want to give it more love.

Don't worry about whether you've picked the best post, let the readers decide if it should rise to the top.

Let me start.

I think this post has the potential to make a real impact on how you are thinking about your career longterm:

Whether you are a newbie, mid-career, or a seasoned vet, I would be shocked if this read wasn't valuable and enjoyable.

There is some really awesome guidance in this article for being a more empathetic communicator:

This advice is geared toward writing documentation, but can be applied in general too.

Hi Ben,

Good initiative.

I did a post about coding best practices that can be used no matter the programming language you're using.

A lot of the time, developers want to learn new languages, did a lot of stuff, but don't spend much time trying to understand good principles or maybe just they don't have enough guidelines.

Hope It helps.

For anyone, I wrote more content, if you want to check it out, just visit my profile.

Doctor's wash their hands all the time to avoid infecting patients. We should always start development by creating a new branch, just to avoid time lost because of entangled changes.

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is one of the leading technologies of recent time and it is making a lot of buzz with models like GPT-3 and BERT(which used for google search). A new model DALL-E was released a few days ago by Open AI which is used to generate images from text. In this post, I have described about Python libraries you must know to start learning about NLP this year.

I write mostly about NLP so you can follow me and read more NLP related content there.

Last year I had a 'thought' (not even a goal) to write one article a week, consistently throughout the year. Guess what I did it!

Here's what my last week article looks like:

Here I tell you why consistency is important and what it can do to you as a person be it about your career or life. Lots of straight truths are there.

Hope you all will connect after reading this.

Remembering which method to use on a Javascript array was difficult when I was learning. This post really helped me to remember the methods, what they do, what they return, etc and the visuals are a big part of that.

Savvas Stephanides has some great posts on how to fix particular accessibility mistakes that have helped make me more conscious of how I can improve.

I'll plug the latest:

This one, because it's so different from most other posts (it's about astronomy, analyzed/simulated through computer code):

I loved this article and really thought it should have gotten more attention - such a great way to use a current event to raise our awareness of accessibility!
