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.

Reflecting and learning

@princewhyte2 looked back on everything they've learned so far as a programmer and summarized what they wish thy knew when they were starting out. Super helpful!

Let's talk about <!DOCTYPE html>!

@aman894 helps us understand the importance of the <!DOCTYPE html> statement. Congrats to them on their first post on DEV!

Visualizing pattens

Congrats to @eevajonnapanula for this awesome #showdev post β€” and more importantly, for their new sweater design site!

"Git commit messages are how we communicate to our future selves."

@simeg explains why git commit messages are important and how you can improve yours.

Accessibility: the what, why and how

Thank you to @yuridevat for explaining what accessibility is, why it's important and how we can achieve accessible design.

Docker Primer

@roselinebassey explains the basics that can help you get started with Docker. We all could benefit from this sound advice at one point or another!

Fun with design

@riapacheco shows us how to create a line chart "in a style that's all the rage in cryptocurrency dashboard design and optimized for user interaction."

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!

Since I am a badge addict, I was hoping to get the a11y badge for being one of the 7th authors of the week with hashtag a11y πŸ˜‡
Did I misunderstand the badge requirements?
