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. ❀️

Time is of the essence

"Despite being a failure at managing my own time, I can still give some advice and tips," writes @technoglot. You sure can!

The Real Workβ„’ of programming

@adamcoster explains that the Real Workβ„’ of programming mostly consists of things that aren't directly writing code. And documentation is certainly one of them!

Try to have a wonderful weekend

As @poudyal_rabin says, weekends are precious. As developers, we often but our personal time on the back-burner since it's especially easy for work to follow us home these days. If you need some inspiration for your weekend, this post is for you.

Spring cleaning

Need some unit testing tips and tricks for clean code? @thawkin3 has you covered.

A uniquely portable magic

@jordienr shares a short but sweet list of books that aren't directly related to programming, but are enriching for developers, nonetheless.

Create, build and publish a package to npm in ES6

"The npm ecosystem is a great way to distribute useful blocks of reusable code," says @whitep4nth3r. "Through learning how to build and publish packages to npm, I feel like I’ve really levelled up my web dev skills." Congrats!

You've got mail

@aahnik explains how you can easily send an email using a Python script. If everything goes right, there will be no output in the terminal, and you will see the email sitting right in the recipient's inbox!

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 Tuesday!

Hey DEV Team! Actually I just wanted to let you know that I didn’t receive a JS badge for my post for the last week. Maybe it was a glitch and please check at your side! The post link:
