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.

Embracing your unique learning style

@naalaryea is doing exactly that! Don't miss this inspiring look inside one developer's journey with ADHD and learning software development.

Slowing down to go faster and other tech lead insights

@dvddpl recently switched from being an engineer to a tech lead, and while a lot of their responsibilities remained the same, they had to undergo a shift in how they approached their work. Great read!

Finding the business case

If you've ever struggled to identify the business use-case for your app, this post by @kritika27 is a nice starting point.

Git-ing a solid foundation for the rest of your career

@anaveecodes is here to help you get a bit more familiar with git, regardless of your level. Why? Because visiting or revisiting those introductory git concepts helps with so many other areas of development — and can even help you stand out in an interview.

Getting closure

With closures in JS, that is! @amrtaher1234 wishes that someone explained this concept in simpler terms

Intermediate Python, from tuples to encapsulation

Are you past the novice stage but not quite an expert when it comes to Python? @grayhat could be a great resource for you! This post covers the basics of a handful of "level 2" Python concepts. Take a look 👀

Portfolio Perspective

@silviaespanagil knows that while a portfolio is meant to show other people your skills, it's also a great learning experience for you if you have the right mindset.

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!
