Top 7 Featured 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.

Starting a family while maintaining a tech career

In this post, @rinaarts writes about how to approach the tightrope act of being pregnant/having a family as a software developer. Whether this applies to you or not, it's an important and fascinating read.

Writing PRs your coworkers will appreciate

Improving code reviews not only helps you, it helps others to help you too. @peterlunch describes the main benefits you get from writing better PRs.

The Fundamentals to Identity Access Management

You might have heard of IAMs in cloud-native environments. What does such a system do though? @perigk explains the main concepts behind this massive software family, having the busy engineer in mind.

Make your site faster by optimizing LCP

Largest Contentful Paint, or LCP, is a measurement of how fast your pages load. It can be hard to optimize without a bit of guidance, so @steve8708 shares some tips to help you out!

Make your GitHub repo inviting to Others

@tonyasims gives a great into to what Deepgram's speech-recognition technology can help you do. If you're participating in the Deepgram Hackathon here on DEV, this tutorial is particularly enlightening

Building an Anime Search App with TypeSense

For @pramit_marattha, the goal of this article was to create an instant search type application. Instant search, also known as "search as you type," means that whenever you type something, the results appear instantly, providing a quick user experience. Using the tech from Typesense, they were able to build an anime search app.

What someone without a degree would want you to know

If we were to sum up @heyjtk's article with a quote, it would be this one:

"I truly believe that if CS grads are coming out slightly ahead, it is a function of the degree having a longer duration and nothing else."

This is a must-read full of powerful ideas to keep in mind about others' experience and path to software development

That's it for our weekly Top 7 for this Tuesday! Keep an eye on this week for daily content and discussions...and be sure to keep an eye on this series in the future. You might just be in it!
