The 7 Most Popular DEV Posts from the Past Week

1. A true horror story

Why credentials should always be stored in secrets!

2. The Headphone Interruptionβ„’

The sounds of someone saying, "excuse me?," "excuse me?" starts to filter into your consciousness. Then it escalates and the tap on the shoulder is next. If none of those elicit a reaction, your headphones are lifted off your head.

A fun read.

3. Don't step on any toes!

...and you'll get rewarded with a shiny OAuthToken ✨

This is a wonderful guide to understanding OAuth -- fun drawings included!

4. RAM or CPU or both?

A command to figure out which process is bringing your linux box to a screeching halt.

5. Just drag n' drop!

You can now arrange πŸ†šCode's editors both vertically and horizontally and have more than 3 editors side by side layout.

6. How is this convenient?

Imagine you wake up and get up to brush your teeth. You go to the "brooms and brushes" room to get your tooth brush. Then, you go to the "cleaning products" room to get toothpaste. You continue to the "containers" room to get a cup, and finally, you head into the "inputs and outputs" room, where you have a tap through which water enters your house, and a sink with a drain through which fluids can leave your house. You now have everything to go brush your teeth.

Read on to see how this actually relates to coding πŸ˜‹

7. Examine, introspect, and modify

What you need to know about reflection, when to use it & why. Plus a real world example!

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!
