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.

Lazy Loading with React JS 😴

Lazy loading is pretty commonplace nowadays in web development. Take a look at @franklin030601’s tutorial on how to load in images with React JS.

Non-Code Contributions in Open Source
