The 7 Most Popular DEV Posts from the Past Week

Every Tuesday, 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. ❤️

UI fundamentals

If you don't have experience as a UI designer, these tips from @doabledanny will help you implement great design into your applications without needing to take a class.

Nerve-busting interview prep

@thecaitcode said that in their experience, developers tend to focus mostly on technical interview prep — but only 30% of the questions fall into that category. Don't overlook those product, agile, and soft-skills-related questions while preparing for your next interview.

Vite! Vite!

@yyx990803 recently joined DEV and had a pretty awesome announcement right out of the gate — Vite 2.0!

Practice and patience makes perfect

@pfacklam says that aiming to be a better developer already takes you a big step further. If you take the time and work on yourself, the rest will come naturally ❤️

How Lighthouse measures performance

@laurieontech dives into Lighthouse: what it does, why that's important, and how it differs from other tools.

Why would you want to know if an element is visible in the browser's viewport?

LOTS of reasons. @emmaccen helps us figure out how to know and detect if an element is visible in the browser's viewport and shares a hefty sample list of why this might matter to you.

Ruby: A Love Story

Considering DEV is powered by Ruby on Rails, I was all about this post by @sylwiavargas. Turns out a lot of other folks were, too!

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 Tuesday!
