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. DIY primitive surveillance 🔍

Building a little surveillance system with a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and a webcam that was laying around. A quick and practical project.

2. An inspirational AMA 👏

Arit Amana shares their story of juggling a career shift, coding bootcamp, and newborn! It's 80+ comments of practical advice and perspective.

3. Buzzword Bingo

While Chris jokes "how's that for a lot of buzzwords" in the intro, the article does show how to dockerize microservices, combine them into a GraphQL API, and then query from a serverless function.

4. The Great Migration 🐧

Helen shares the experience of migrating a SQL Server database to AWS Aurora. From growing pains, to design challenges, to testing and the go-live process.

5. What is UX Engineering?

Emma breaks it all down, from where UXEs fit, to what skills/qualifications they might need, to interviewing and more.

6. That "I will never be good enough" feeling

Damien takes us along for the ride as they attend an open-source meetup in SF. An incredibly relatable story of belonging, imposter syndrome, and finding confidence to lean in as part of the community.

7. A Bootcamp Primer

Donita shares five observations and tips for people considering a bootcamp. The write-up touches on community, resources, career prep, and more.

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!
