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. Dino Days Are Over

Johan, a senior developer, felt like they had to 'start all over again' - this is a story about breaking old habits, getting up to speed, and all the learnings along the way.

2. Less JavaScript

Adrian shares a list of UI elements that can be created using only CSS - tool tips, text truncation, toggles, and more.

3. Let's Play

Francesco shares several CSS games for those who prefer learning through gamification! There are Flexbox games, CSS grid games, and more.

4. Proceed With Care

Martin shows us an example of the Same-Origin Policy and how we can use CORS to allow cross-origin requests when required.

5. Malicious Programs

Want to render ransomeware inept? Victoria shares their low-tech solution.

6. Lighter & Faster

Sarthak explains why they started using Sublime Text again, and which plugins they found helpful for a seamless switch.

7. Every. Single. Day.

Mateusz shares the Linux commands and tricks they use on a daily basis - from port forwarding to reading logs.

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!
