Best Posts for Beginners: Week of July 29, 2019

One of the reasons I've been so drawn 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 love to compile and share some of the best posts every week for those of us who still identify as #codenewbies!

If you're interested in Javascript, Ben shared some must-follow DEV users this week!

My fiancee (still getting used to saying that!) has been talking about wanting to revisit CSS and Javascript as part of his annual goals at work in the next year, and he loves cats. This post seemed like a great reintroduction to him, breaking down flexbox with cute kitties!

In my day job, I test a lot of different devices and screen sizes - I never knew that you could create custom devices in Firefox devtools! That's just one of the useful tips in Alex's rundown on Firefox this week.

Interested in speaking at conferences in the future? Here are some things to keep in mind when submitting to that CFP!

It's great when advanced or senior developers share some of their advice, and this article is no different. Brian shares some wisdom applicable to anyone, no matter where they are in their journey.

Burnout is super real, and I was going through it bad for awhile. After finally being diagnosed with and getting treated for ADHD, I'm functioning much better now, and my burnout has improved. But it never should have reached the depths it did - Claire's post shares some strategies for self-care and productivity to help assuage some of the effects if you start to feel it, either in learning or at work.

In school, I hated math. It didn't make sense until one day when I was around 27 and then suddenly... it did. I've added a few of these books to my queue, along with Superhi's Math for Creatives course! Superhi is where I take a lot of courses, and they're really great. That referral code gets you a discount, if you're interested!
