The 7 Most Popular 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.

Security in the cloud is a shared responsibility

In the words of a community member Matt Irby, this is a fantastic explanation of the shared responsibility model.

Great work, @adityagaur !

A very important numeronym

... "A11y" that is. Thank you for this thorough and clear breakdown of the term, @ashleemboyer . It's definitely a critical one to me familiar with in this field!

Notes on inheriting code

"There will always be a time in your life when you inherit code that was written by another developer," writes @towernter . In their guide on the subject, you'll learn what to do in this inevitable situation.

Pedro's research is your gain!

@arantespp created this guide because they needed to work on a project that uses MongoDB. Completing the steps outlined in this guide gave them an overview of how MongoDB works. Their research is your gain ✨

On Scrubs and Robots

This is such a powerful career-change story, @winnekes . Thank you for sharing it with us on DEV!

Be Genuine, Build Trust, Have Fun

Those are some pretty great Developer Relations tenets, @kimmaida . This post explains just how cross-functional DevRel is — and why understanding that matters!

Decoding cryptography

@0xjepsen has done a massive service in breaking down cryptography as it relates to distributed ledger tech. They also shared some seriously helpful resources if you're interested in this field (including respected open source cryptography libraries)!

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!
