Top 7 Featured 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.

Your tools can be wrong, sometimes

We all want our sites to be fast and it takes a lot of small wins in order to add up to this outcome. @mlrawlings points out two performance factors that are often overlooked and how your devtools may mislead you into believing them unimportant.

Must-read books for developers

Choosing a career in tech is choosing an endless life of learning. One person doesn’t have time to read all of the books out there, so @tmchuynh put together a shortlist of her favorite books for developers.

Pushing DEV posts to GitHub Pages

@brunodrugowick wanted a simple, static site with the list of posts from their DEV profile. Check out how he made it work using GitHub Pages!


When you have a lot of side projects, it can be tough to manage all the issues that are sent to your email inbox. But now, every time a new issue is made, @aschmelyun gets a physical ticket printed out on his desk!

For when you're aiming beyond "good enough"

Thank you @trishathecookie for this helpful and indeed actionable guide to leveling up your impact as a frontend dev. Good stuff!

Your inbox may not be as private as you think

When it comes to privacy and the law, the end ultimately justifies all means, and companies may change their conditions at any time. @jmau111 speaks on the ways in which email privacy has been breached.

Farewell, Nick ❤️

@nickytonline is moving on to the next chapter and all of us here at Forem will miss him dearly — the good news? Nick will continue to spread his positivity and skills across the tech landscape and his impact will be felt here at Forem for a long time to come. Thank you for everything, Nick!

That's it for our weekly Top 7 for this Tuesday! Keep an eye on this week for daily content and discussions...and be sure to keep an eye on this series in the future. You might just be in it!

Noice, this is awesome!

Thanks for mentioning my post, that's a good incentive to go back to my writing habits of 2 years ago. And I do have a few ideas!
