DEV Mods' Favorites of 2023

This past year we saw so many wonderful posts being shared in our community on DEV!

Thankfully, behind the scenes, we have a crew of DEV Community Mods taking action to uplift the best content we have to offer. With their mod abilities, these folks are regularly upvoting the good stuff (👍), downvoting the less-than-good stuff (👎), and reporting any spam to us admins (🧐) so we can take action to remove it. These moderator actions are invisible to the average DEV community member, and our mods are the unsung heroes volunteering their time to help make DEV a better place for all.

Mod Faves

On that note, about a week ago, I sent a survey to our 5,000+ mods to collect their favorite picks of the year and these were the top picks in each category.

Favorite Post of the Year

The most highly voted post of the year by mods goes to @tbroyer's "How I teach Git." 👏

Favorite Discussion of the Year

The discussion with the most votes is @mcharytoniuk's "Money or Passion?" 💰❤️

Favorite Series of the Year

As voted by DEV mods, @bekahhw's New Maintainer Resources takes the cake for most voted-on series. 🎂

The following is the first post in the series:
