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.

An incredible gesture

@devdevcharlie used the MediaPipe handpose detection machine learning model to try to use it to create UIs. In this post, they show the result of a quick prototype built in a few hours. Amazing.

Lights, camera, contrast

"Spending even a small amount of time reviewing your UI for high contrast issues and fixing the highest impact items will go a long way to distinguish your product from others for high contrast users."

Thanks for this post, Matt! I learned so much from it and I think others will, too 😊

Time is precious

Here's a look at some crucial usages of object destructuring, that, in @atapas' opinion, you must know to save you time and make you a more efficient dev.

Ready, set, dashboard

@ironcladdev shows you a way around using Wordpress over your favorite stack without requiring you to spend hours "sweating your brain out coding an admin dashboard". Let's take a look

Watch, read, and learn

@techworld_with_nana explains what DevOps really. It's time to get all your DevOps questions answered and doubts erased. Check out this helpful post and YouTube video!

A teachable mistake

@jringeisen inadvertently pinged the Places API 17,000 times in one hour, costing $646. But guess what? Mistakes happen and if you learn from them, they can be worthwhile. Better yet, Jonathan shared the incident with all of us so we can avoid it ourselves. Love it.

Real-time realness

@thesanjeevsharma illustrates (literally 🎨) how to create real-time updates with web sockets, polling/long polling, and server-sent events.

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!
