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. Older & Wiser

Caitlyn shares how they got into coding at age 31. This post is a great reminder to values your existing skills and not feel held back if you don't have a CS degree.

2. Pros & Cons

Deepu, an experienced programmer, tries Rust for the first time and shares their initial likes and dislikes towards the language.

3. Avid Consumption

If you learn best through videos, check out this handy list of YouTube channels.

4. Under The Hood

Sagiv dives into JavaScript's prototype chains and explains how objects connect to other objects, and how to implement inheritance and relationships between objects.

5. Pain-Free

Stephen shows us how to configure the typescript compiler to set up path mappings for imports - no more ugly and painful restructuring with inconsistent relative paths!

6. Automate!!

Christopher is lazy, so they choose to automate their tasks to avoid repetition. In this post, they show us their favorite tools to make life easier and code more accessible.

7. Rationing Data

Mike has been traveling the world for the past six months. In this post, they share the quirks and challenges that come with working on the road.

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!
