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.

Tutorial time

@uche_azubuko, this is such a fantastic and simple-to-navigate tutorial on using Strapi to build an API. Great work!

Let's end the software fear and discouragement

@jordan_smith's post is a fantastic look inside some of the ways that early-career developers are frequently discouraged from pursuing a career in software. Let's inform ourselves together so we can make these myths a thing of the past.

Optimizing sloooooow websites

@alexsan28195851 came through with a super-helpful annotated list of reasons why you are able to cook breakfast and run a few laps around the block while your website loads. Let's fix it!

Everyone on the same page

That's @amyoulton's goal when it comes to coders and non-coders! In this post, you'll find advice on "effectively explain[ing] your projects to non-coding members of your team" so that the entire org can feel unified and on the same side. 🏆

No job is perfect

Including software development. @vibalijoshi takes a look at some of the downsides of working in this field so we can work together to overcome them.

Big takeaways from React Conf 2021

@alexeagleson attended React Conf 2021 and put together a list of some of the new topics they found most compelling. Take a look!


@zippcodder shares their process and methods for creating games from scratch using HTML Canvas. You'll find a lot of great info in here that will help you design your own!

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!
