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.

Who could do this better than you?

When it comes to being an ally at your company, @josefine says nobody! It's time to place being an empathetic and purpose-driven team member at the top of our list of 2022 resolutions.

Super helpful, @alvaromontoro!

@andrewbaisden explains the concept of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and breaks down a sample process by which a team would build a product. Super interesting!
