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. Tangible Benefits

Fidel uses Vim as their main editor for web development. In this post, they share four plugins for efficiency and how they implement hot reloading.


Chris breaks down DNS Records into ten bullets -- with annotated visualizations!

3. No More Shiny Objects

Tim, an experienced Linux user, explains why they're now getting things done on Windows instead of Linux.

4. Common Themes

How interviews are conducted and evaluated will always be up for debate. In this post, Eda-qa shares their method of evaluating job applicants.

5. Not Just A Perk

Scott believes the future of work is remote -- but working remotely comes with its own set of challenges. In this post, they share tips on how to make the most of it.

6. Performant Code

Alberto shows us how to write a simple shared Rust library and compile it to Android and iOS. (And how to write a Flutter plugin using the same code!)

7. Single. Most. Important. Doc.

James shares their recommended template for READMEs and explains the importance of each section.

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!
