Best DEV.to Posts for Beginners: Week of April 7, 2019

desi profile image Desi ・2 min read

One of the reasons I've been so drawn to DEV.to over other platforms is the super encouraging and helpful community that gathers here. Initially I felt like it was going to be more a place where I sat back and watched, rather than write and contribute, but I've been so pleased to find not only helpful articles and tutorials that I understand, but also that input from new coders and devs is well-received.

I thought it would be nice to compile some of the best posts every week for those of us who still identify as #codenewbies!

I didn't set out to make my first open source pull request this week, but I live on Twitter, so when I saw Jess mention that there was a typo on the DEV community moderation page, in I dove.

Right now, I'm deep in trying to learn Javascript. These Code-It notes are exactly what I was looking for!

Networking is hard and intimidating. I love this low-pressure way of being able to find people who look like you might have something in common with!

If you're looking for tips on wireframing best practices, or programs to use, this comment thread is rich with ideas.

What were your favorite "newbie" posts this week?

So true!

Because of dev, I got into open source during Hacktoberfest, and recently started contributing to weekly Twitter chats, and it's been such a great experience! :D

I wrote a quick primer on CSS and some of the complex decisions it's making for you about what styles are authoritative!
