The 7 Most Popular DEV Posts from the Past Week

Every Monday we round up the previous week's top posts based on traffic, engagement, and a hint of editorial curation. The typical week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday, but don't worry, we take into account posts that are published later in the week. ❤️

1. Take a Peek 👀

Have you ever how Python code is executed? Lachlan dives head-first in into Python bytecode in this post.

2. Reduce Clutter

Tracy teaches us how to reduce clutter when designing anything visual (from your personal website to slides for a talk) and walks us through an example.

3. Not a Trap!

If you're prone to growing your reading list without actually reading anything, you'll appreciate this short-list of machine learning books.

4. Git is Great

Eyar put together a cheatsheet of useful git commands! Since git commands aren't the most intuitive, this list is good to have handy.

5. Begin your journey today!

A go-to list of resources for anyone starting their career as a developer, or contemplating it. Molly covers everything from bootcamps to how-to guides to brutal honesty.

6. Fresh Slate

Have you ever been so fed up by your configs with an app that you just re-install it? That's what Aman did with VS Code. In this post, they share their new set up.

7. Google "Gantt"

^ That's what I had to do when I learned this post was all about Gantt charts 😂
Rick shares a few tricks on how to use Google Sheets for project management.

That's it for our weekly wrap up! Keep an eye on this week for daily content and discussions...and if you miss anything, we'll be sure to recap it next Monday!
