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. What the for loop?

How facebook uses a for loop to prevent JSON hijacking. What other methods have you seen?

2. Universal Reading

A curated list of non-technology-specific books recommended for all devs to read -- from data analysis to leadership to personal effectiveness.

3. Beyond Basics

Got your select * from x where y queries down? Now it's time to learn about SQL Joins! 🤝

4. From local script -> Production

How to containerize a python process to end up with a working Docker image.

5. Community support ❤️

A thread for anyone interesting in giving or receiving feedback on their portfolios.

6. Find your balance

Anna shares how they've finally found balance while juggling a full-time job, side projects, staying healthy, and living life! This post is all about what they learned from their struggles along the way.

7. What's your go to album?

I've always had an on/off relationship with listening to music while doing any sort of work. When I do, it's generally electronic and lyric-less. This thread has lots of recommendations for all genres :)

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!
