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.

Frontend has an engineering problem! @oxharris demonstrates how the closer you get to Frontend's bottlenecks (and to how much of that is tooling-induced) the more you’ll wonder if we have created more problems with our tools than we've solved.

When useEffect runs

useEffect is one of those React/Preact hooks that most people have a love/hate relationship with, but like it or not, it's good to understand how it works. This isn’t the first post on this subject, nor will it be the last, but hopefully you can learn something about useEffect from @cassidoo!

Technical Writing Process: How To Write A Good Technical Article

A good technical article is an article that breaks down complex concepts into simple and easy-to-understand language. Here, you’ll learn about the technical writing process that @the_greatbonnie goes through to write better articles for clients.

The Best* Tech Interview

In the tech industry, a necessary evil is the tech interview as a way to assess an applicant's technical skill. But this article from @nikacodes is about one tech interview that was different.

A Minimal, Multi-framework, Responsive Image Component

Doing web images right can be hard. The img tag is just the starting point. In 2023, if you want the best performance you should follow these tips from @ascorbic.

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!
