Share the ️Love ️— What's your favorite #beginners post on DEV?

A few weeks back I wrote up a post called What's your favorite post on DEV? (by someone else!) and you all chimed into the conversation dropping so many links to excellent posts, plus some really kind words for the authors that created those posts.

So, I thought we might as well try this again. 😀

This time, I'm curious to know...

What's your favorite post shared under #beginners?

I also really dig @erikaheidi's article:

This post from @damcosset really helped spur forward a few "eureka" moments on concepts I had otherwise only sort of understood.

Honestly, posts like this are extremely helpful for beginners:

Being confident in file structure decisions is surprisingly hard (at least for me), and I always value when someone comes along the offer advice like this.

Git Concepts I Wish I Knew Years Ago

The most used technology by developers is not Javascript.

It's not Python or HTML.

It hardly even gets mentioned in interviews or listed as a pre-requisite for jobs.
