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.

The Power of Learning in Public

@blackgirlbytes walks us the history of "learning in public", talking about why it's done and how to do it effectively in this thorough and actionable post.

CI/CD for Developers

Coupled with continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD), DevOps helps IT organizations streamline their development process by automating manual tasks related to code deployment. @pavanbelagatti explores how you can adopt CI/CD to improve your team’s efficiency and delivery pipeline.

Svelte vs React for 2023

In the web development world, sometimes it can feel like a new frontend framework comes out every day! Most come and go, but one thing is for sure: Svelte is here to stay. Here, @mikehtmlallthethings answers whether you should learn React or Svelte.

Reflection on a 15-Year Developer Journey

@entrptaher’s self-taught development journey started around 15 years ago as a little kid. It went from passion to a job to irritation with tons of ups and downs. Hear some of the tips they picked up along the way!

Documentation 101

Having good documentation for your open source project is an important (and often overlooked) feature to drive adoption and show the full potential of what users can accomplish with your application or library. Learn the basics from @erikaheidi in this new series.

Applying Design Patterns in React

Shotgun Surgery is a code smell where making any modifications requires making many small changes to many different places. @itshugo shows us how to go about applying the Strategy Pattern to solve it.

Set Dark Mode Based on Time

With just a bit of JavaScript and CSS, @mohsenkamrani shows us how to set the theme of a website to change from light to dark depending on whether it is day or night.

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!

Of course! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on React vs. Svelte and for keeping the convo so balanced and civil in the comments section. Sometimes versus posts can get folks a bit heated, so it was nice seeing that everybody kept it cool and the convo has been productive!
