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. Don't Do It!

There's tons of advice on what to do to be a good programmer but Haseeb takes the opposite approach and shares a short list of things not to do.

2. Many Benefits

Emma explains what designs systems are and why it's beneficial to establish one. Great primer.

3. LOC = Worst Metric Ever

Advice for all developers on writing readable, perfect code in good languages 🤪

4. Power of 10

Rémy interprets the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Power of 10 rules for web development.

5. No Deadline, Full Re-write

Some insight into the decision making process of moving from a monolith to microservices.

6. All About K8s

Sendil helps us understand how Kubernets works, how it's architected, and what the various components are.

7. Enhanced Editor

As long as VS Code is the most searched editor, posts to enhancing your editor setup will continue to be popular and useful for the community :)

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!

I'm so confused 🤯
I didn't expect this at all, for sure not on my first post. 😅

Thank you all for reading and thanks a lot to the DEV team for choosing my story as one of the highlights of the week. 😊🙏

I'm really grateful and I guess I must keep my promise now and write more posts 😅
