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.

As @austin642 explains, by using just two mixins, you'll be able to create highly complex, but scalable and flexible CSS layouts, without restrictions. Sounds pretty good, right?

Exciting changes in React 18

The React 18 Release Candidate was released March 8th, 2022. That means the features are all finalized and there are only a few weeks left until React 18 is officially released. @kathryngrayson shows us the major takeaways from the latest RC.
