Top 5 DEV Comments from the Past Week

This is a weekly roundup of awesome DEV comments that you may have missed. You are welcome and encouraged to boost posts and comments yourself using the #bestofdev tag.

Welcome to DEV, @jubileujulia!

Hi Everyone :)
I currently work as a film producer, and I started to study code during the quarantine and found myself completely fascinated with this world.
I still have a long way to go before I can call myself a developer, but I'm very determined and I expect to learn a lot from the community here on
I'm doing all of my studying online (mainly on Codecademy PRO, and Udemy), and I plan to spend some months completely immersed in code to pursue a career in web development in the future.

Thanks for opening up about your anxieties, @willemodendaal. We all have them and sharing them with a trusted community can really help.

This is probably more than you're looking for, but I'm thinking carefully about my career (and why I tend to burn out so often). I wrote this list just this morning, so I guess it's relevant...

  • Having to focus on many things at once.
  • Production support issues.
  • Team members I'm responsible for that under-perform.
  • Deadlines.
  • Business drama/chaos.
  • Problematic architectures (especially if I came up with them)
  • A lot of people depending on me!

Great choice of early sci-fi media influence, @manasp. Dexter's Lab is a classic.

Dexter’s Laboratory🔥


Congrats, @dmahely!!

Born a Crime is on my reading list, @galdin!

  1. Born a crime: stories from a South African childhood - Trevor Noah
  2. Designing Distributed Systems: Patterns and paradigms for scalable, reliable services - Brendan Burns.
  3. Flatland: A romance of many dimensions - Edwin A. Abbott.

See you next week for more great comments ✌
