Every Monday 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. ❤️

1. Seamless Productivity, Collaboration — and Etiquette,

Milu approaches the topic of Git with a refreshing focus on etiquette — essentially, the practices that will make your team's experience of debugging, merging, and committing/managing PRs smoother.

2. Philosopher cap, on!

Bastien gets philosophical on the color of a browser page. Is it white, transparent, or something more complex? In this post, we are guided through the notion of a canvas and why they are important for browser viewport comprehension.

3. Deep breaths

Some learnings from the ever-evolving experience of a productive and ambitious engineer, friend, family member, and dog-lover. Thanks, Ali!

4. On Fuego 🔥

Fayaz shares his (admittedly) opinionated list of go-to tools and resources for developers that are free as in free!

5. Class is in Session

Those coming from Object-Oriented Programming likely don't need a review of JavaScript classes, Samantha explains. The rest of us do!

6. Deno 101 for JS Newbies

Maximous explains Deno through a lens friendly to those who are new to JavaScript, talking about the drawbacks of Node.js, how Deno came to be, and why Node.js is likely still better for devs getting started.

7. Your Biggest Supporter is a Stranger

In this post Carl-W shares their experience seeking out — and getting comfortable with — remote work. This post is a great read for newer devs currently faced with the remote-first world we are living in, whether it's due to pandemic-necessity or enthusiasm about working on a distributed team!

That's it for our weekly wrap up! Keep an eye on dev.to this week for daily content and discussions...and if you miss anything, we'll be sure to recap it next Monday!
