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.

Slow and steady wins the race

@ruppysuppy has some great tips to share about improving your GitHub profile — spoiler: go slow and don't try to cheat the process.

Conscious accessibility

@eevajonnapanula's very first sentence is a great indication of how helpful and compelling the rest of the article is:

"We, as developers, tend to develop sites unconsciously for people like ourselves. If we don't actively pay attention, the sites are often accessible only for certain types of people."

So very true.

Testing TypeScript

@dastasoft's post is all about going through the basics of TS and understanding the benefits so you can decide if you want those benefits or not. Pretty helpful stuff!

Decluttering — fast 🧹

If you're like me, @yomdroid's article (about how you can sweep out your inbox with Python) is both extremely applicable and a little triggering 😆

Thank you for sharing, Ogheneyoma! I need to try this.

The good, the bad, and the boolean

The TL;DR of this overview from @mpocock1? Bad booleans represent state. Good booleans are derived from state.

That said, there's so much more to glean from the entire article!

Save the date! ❤️

Congrats to @christinecontreras on their upcoming nuptials! I love that your wedding planning prep includes building an app to predict the best date to get married based on historical weather patterns and location. <3

Resetting your Git knowledge

If you are confused about much of the terminology in Git, you are FAR from alone. Thank you for clearing some of it up for us, @pragativerma18.

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!
