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.

Sharing the wheel with Copilot

GitHub Copilot, that is! Thanks to @thenomadevel for sharing this breakdown of what this tool does... and doesn't do (i.e. steal your job).

Once more with feeling

@lorena built a machine learning model that detects emotions from speech in a data science bootcamp. Pretty incredible, right? Read all about it here. πŸ‘‡

Making the leap

@maxritter wrote about making the move from being employed by a corporation to working independently as a freelancer. If you've ever considered doing the same, check this out!

We are paid to solve problems not to write code.

@dvddpl explains why we need to learn how to love problems and not mistake our own ego as the entire point as programmers.

The art of the possible

@0shuvo0 created a pretty amazing app that allows you to draw on a canvas in multiple colors, clear it, and save your creation as an image. Best of all, they provide the code so you can build the same app yourself!

Which conditional statement to use when

@sumusiriwardana took a problem they used to frequently encounter and turned it into a helpful resource for others. Great stuff, Sumudu.

The No-Code Movement

"To reach an age of absolute no-code," writes @study_web_dev "we need to outdo ourselves with artificial intelligence before anything else." More fantastic insights into where we're headed with "no-code" and the factors involved in that trajectory in this post.

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!
