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.

Testing, Testing

"I know that reality sometimes demands we spit out the code as fast as we can, but we, as professionals, should always strive to make our work better and improve as we go."

Riding the wave(form)

@rolandixor serves up an awesome waveform tutorial that uses JavaScript. Check it out!

The environmental impact of launch.json

When @codepo8 starts a new project, they create a launch.json file, put it in a VS Code folder on the root of their project and create a rich and comprehensive VS Code experience. Follow their tutorial to find out how.

Fonts are more important than you might think

As @anthonyjdella explains, the fonts we use as developers are crucial as the correct ones can help us find bugs and lessen eye strain. Find out more on why font matter in this post.

"Make yourself seen"

... and more lessons from @tassiaaccioly's first year as a programmer!

We're all toxic

@sachagreif outlines a number of patterns that lead to toxicity in online developer communities. This is a truly fantastic read for all of us here in the DEV Community ❤️

Some thoughts on the future of the web

The TL;DR of @ryansolid's post is that, in their opinion, we're heading back to routing on the server — but you'll definitely want to read this fascinating post to find out why and how.

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!
