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. Wisdom of the Crowd

Pierre scraped 70 "Best Programming Book" listicles and whittled down the recommendations into one manageable list.

2. Scratch That!

Davide shares an endearing story of using Scratch to build a math game with their kids. Regardless of age, we all experience similar joys and pains of coding.

3. Document Object Model

Iqra gives us a visual overview of the DOM and how we can change the content displayed on a web page.

4. Bells & Whistles

Alvaro walks us through all their considerations for developing an interactive resume -- something to consider if you're on the job hunt!

5. Gamification 👾

John shares six platforms to learn programming, the fun way! Each platform has a different approach but they all encourage you to study via play.

6.Unnecessary Repetition

If TypeScript is starting to feel like a burden...this post is for you. Wojciech a pattern for writing tests that help avoid unnecessary repetition.

7. Not a Big Deal

Jared helps us realize we don't need to be a math whiz to understand Big O. In this tutorial, you’ll learn the fundamentals of Big O logarithmic time complexity with examples in JavaScript.

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!
