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.

Mentoring a Junior

Passing on your knowledge has the potential to provide more value than actually writing code. Smart companies know this and reward it. In this post, @arielbk gives advice on mentoring.

Intra-Site Chat!

This week @rajeshj3 announced an extension that will allow you to talk to people over the internet who are on the same website/webpage as you, assuming they've installed the app as well. How exciting!

Exception Handling in Dart/Flutter

The worst thing you can do as a programmer is not to think about catching and tracking errors. Let's learn how to with @frezyx!

Customize your ZSH Prompt

@cassidoo uses a .zshrc file to customize the terminal. Here’s how to make that little prompt useful without being overwhelming or distracting!

From Methods to Hooks

In this post, @swastikyadav talks about the paradigm shift from lifecycle methods to state synchronization and hooks in ReactJs. A video version is also available, if you prefer!

Disillusioned with a Career in Tech

@martinzokov thoughtfully digs into their feelings about working as a software engineer and the dread that comes from working "this endless while loop of the 9 to 6 grind every day" when they'd much rather be pursuing something creative and more rewarding.

ADHD Brains

If you have ADHD, chances are that it inhibits your ability to manage your responsibilities at home and at work. This week, @abbeyperini shared experiences with ADHD in a multi-part series covering multiple challenges when it comes to coding with ADHD.

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!
