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.

On Criticism

Every developer has both been on the receiving and the giving end of criticism. It’s a vital part of our job, so let’s learn how to do it optimally with @lexlohr!

You Don’t Need to be Perfect

We, as developers, want the best for ourselves and what we produce. As we build from scratch it’s natural to be committed to what we produce. @mstryoda questions if we have to be perfect or if we are unintentionally forced to.

Retro Animated CSS Border

Inspired from the ShopTalkShow’s temporary theme, @chokcoco recreates a similar retro aesthetic.

Clean Architecture: React

This text is part of a series of texts from @rubemfsv about Clean Architecture analysis applied with different frameworks and languages. This week, we’re covering React.

Quick History Lesson!

@iarchitsharma put together this remarkable post cataloguing the history of JavaScript. Class is in session!

Drag and Drop from Scratch

Drag and drop applications are very common nowadays, they are great for the user experience and nowadays people notice when it’s missing. @franklin030601 shares an easy way to set it up in your React app without libraries.

Keeping accessibility top of mind

This post about building with accessibility in mind is appreciated — and it's helpful whether you're building a new site or rebuilding an old one!

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!
