The 7 Most Popular DEV Posts from the Past Week

Every Tuesday 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. ❤️

Save hours of manual typing

A super handy list from @simonpaix! If you're just starting your coding journey, these tips might just save you a significant amount of time.

The only way out is through...

@alexlsalt shows us that we truly have so much to learn from early-career developers.

Never underestimate the power of simplicity

@commentme shares some examples of the libraries that make Vanilla JS "somewhat impeccable".

REST for the weary

@lucasnevespereira breaks down the process of writing a REST API using Golang. Best practices, galore!


@devdevcharlie thought it would be fun to toggle dark mode on and off by clapping your hands, just like those classic Clapper commercials. So, they built a way to do just that. What a great idea!

Don't let JS drive you nuts

As this post explains, JavaScript is accessible for newcomers, and a lot of what you'll use it for doesn't require an in-depth understanding of the mechanics. But this phenomenon can "trap" you if you're not careful. Good looking out, @jesuisundev.

Running your containerized workloads on AWS

@aditmodi's post compares the three most important ways to run Docker on AWS.

  1. Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) with AWS Fargate
  2. Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS)
  3. AWS Elastic Beanstalk (EB) with Single Container Docker


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 Tuesday!
