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. Six Practices

With over ten years of experience, Arpit shares six practices to prevent their future self from going crazy. For example, don't follow the DRY principle blindly.

2. Embracing Minimalism

Paula explains how you can apply minimalism to write cleaner, more productive code.

3. What do you want to do?

A guide to what type of Linux you should choose, based on what you're looking to do.

4. Some Pointers

Pauline shares pointers for tech leads on how to improve engineering culture for junior developers (also great points to consider for anyone looking to work for a new organization).

5. Eye-Opening

This post is "less about how something works, and more about how it reads." Laurie walks through an example on all the different ways we can write the same logic, and why we should pick the solution optimized for human readability.

6. CSS is Cool

Lots of pretty images and code snippet examples of styling different shapes in CSS.

7. Appreciation Post

A quick introduction to Gitlens.

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!
