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.

🇺🇦 ❤️

As a Ukrainian, @sirinoks is understandably devastated by the ongoing attack on their homeland. We thank them for sharing a look inside what their week was like as a developer during a time of crisis and more importantly, as a human being following this tragic development. We are keeping their friends and family in our thoughts.

Knowing when to leave

@smeetsmeister shares some important life lessons that he learned from stepping down from his first startup!

A clean and tidy React structure 🧹

Organizing your React project can be a huge headache. @jeffreythecoder will help us out with his tips for a clean and practical React structure.


@alisaduncan shares a look at their favorite tools and products that make working from home more comfortable and seamless. Perhaps it's time for an upgrade yourself!

Public Policy

As @osikwemhev puts it, "Policy is one of the less frequently talked about features in NodeJS". So... let's take a look!

The Great Gatsby

Why use Gatsby instead of Next.js for website development? @alex_barashkov will explain in detail!

A new era for higher-order components?

What are higher-order components and is it true that React hooks made them obsolete? @adevnadia answers all these questions and more!

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!

I must have missed something. Where are the posts providing the Russian perspective on the Ukraine conflict? Have we reached the point where we choose a side before we even know what's happening and then muzzle the other side so they have no recourse? Is it possible that this sort of one-sidedness might be an impetus for the Russian actions? Or do we somehow just know without looking at all the facts that Putin = Hitler, Zelensky = Gandhi, Russians = evil, and Azov Battalion = freedom fighters? Could it be a little more nuanced than that?

If the attack on Ukraine is an injustice rather than an attempt to correct an injustice, how would we know? Maybe a bit more even-handedness is in order instead of this jingoistic bullshit masquerading as humanitarian concern?
