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. ❤️

Securing the front-end

In this post, @mizadmehr ponders some interesting security-related frontend issues. Sign me up!

A gentle reminder to live your life

This headline makes @maulik’s post sound tough, but it’s all love. They remind us to revisit where our priorities lie and always prioritize our health (in all senses) over work.

Three tips to get up-to-speed with a new concept

@ceeoreo opens up the vault to share how they learned JAMStack quickly for a conference panel, but this post is about so much more than learning about one specific architecture -- it’s about how you can tackle a big concept in a streamlined, organized, and repeatable way for sustainable learning.

Decrypting Cryptography

A simple, awesome glossary of the fundamental cryptography terms and concepts by @aakatev.

Connection in the Time of COVID

@lazerwalker used to hate virtual conferences. But after organizing a game-design conference this year (and building an event platform and social space to support it,) they learned to love virtual events -- done right.

Stress, begone!

In most cases, writes @nickbulljs, stress is part and parcel of being a human. But that doesn’t mean we need to let it destroy us! Thanks for sharing the techniques that help you restore peace and balance, Nick!

Pattern-spotting with Regex

I love a visual guide! In this one, @amitness illustrates the various concepts underlying regex with the goal of helping you “build a good mental model of how a regex pattern works”.

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!
