The 7 Most Popular DEV Posts from the Past Week

Note: Hi everyone! I'm posting on behalf of @jess who is out today. She'll be back soon to share the Top 7 as per usual. In the meantime, enjoy this week's picks! - Gracie

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. ❀️

The IaC primer you’ve been looking for

@flippedcoding shared a super helpful resource for any dev looking to get a more solid understanding of Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC)!

A little Rusty

As an engineer, @22mahmoud needs their terminal to be blazing fast. They discovered that a handful of tools written in Rust can help tremendously

Your knowledge doesn’t begin and end with syntax

When you work towards becoming a polyglot dev and switch between two languages, your style also changes as do key fundamentals. @niharrs helps us see beyond syntax.

Avoiding the mousetrap πŸπŸ§€

@oguimbal explains how Vim can cut down on the frustration of switching between mouse, arrow keys, and keyboard -- and how to approximate the speed of Vim with relying solely on it!

Job hunting is hard, but it WILL pay off!

We’re thrilled to have @coffeecraftcode coming aboard the DEV team! In this awesome post, they share a bit about their experience interviewing at multiple companies over time

Failing upwards (in a good way!)

@dthompsondev writes about one of their biggest beliefs: if you fail, fail forward and fail fast.

Getting wacky with GitHub Actions

For their entry to the GitHub Actions Hackathon, @jayehernandez built an awesome action in the β€œwacky wildcards” category that (among other things) replaces curse words in GitHub Issues and PRs with approved words from The Good Place, a TV show they love!

That's it for our weekly wrap up! Keep an eye on DEV this week for daily content and discussions...and if you miss anything, we'll be sure to recap it next Tuesday!
