The 7 Most Popular DEV Posts from the Past Week

jess profile image Jess Lee (she/her) ・2 min read

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. Straight Out-Of-The-Box

Before jumping on this or that extension, Geoff encourages us to make the most of VS Code by making customizations within its existing settings.

2. A Lifestyle Diet

Eric shares their story about losing weight through intermittent fasting and why they think it easily fits into developer lifestyles.

Note: As an intermittent faster myself, I also vouch for IF but every body is different and you should see a doctor before making any drastic dietary changes!

3. App Anatomy

As a dev at a consulting company, Miklos shares tips on how they approach building apps -- from routing to landing pages.

4. Level Up

According to Paul, the quickest way to transition from being a junior dev to a mid-level dev is through building habits. In this post, they share a few habits that all devs should master.

5. Jargon Busting

Terms and concepts that every data analyst needs to know -- along with additional DEV resources for each!

6. Requirements

A curated list of tools for speeding up productivity and maintaining an efficient workflow.

7. We love lists!

Once you've optimized your out-of-the-box VS code settings, check out these recommended VS Code extensions. This is a highly curated list primarily aimed at front end developers.

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