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.
Editorial note: Hi everyone! Gracie here. You might have seen me around DEV — I'm the Content Manager at Forem and an admin/moderator of CodeNewbie Community and DEV. I'll be sharing the Top 7 and weekly newsletter while Jess is away on parental leave. I'm very excited to be a part of your weekly ritual for the next few months! Thanks for having me.
