Top 7 Featured DEV Posts of the Week

We're back with another selection of top articles from the week prior as curated by the DEV Team. Reminder that we choose articles on a Friday — Monday schedule, so don't expect to see any posts from this past weekend show up in the mix... don't worry though, they'll be in the running for next week!

Below, we've chosen seven fantastic articles, three of which were written by first-time Top 7 winners. From constructing a 3D city solely with HTML & CSS to finding that perfect fit open-source project to work on, we've got a plethora of interesting topics to cover. Let's dig in!



@therubberduckiee strikes again with another captivating tech tale! Building on their “Explaining Kubernetes” success, this time they whisk you away into the realm of SSH, equating it to a mind-bending VR headset. Join the joyous journey into the whimsical world of SSH and storytelling magic, where tech concepts are both approachable and entertaining. 🌟🚗

When using the Fetch API, different errors may occur, such as server error (500), not found error (404), network error, CORS error, and so on. Follow along with @dionarodrigues as she walks us through how to use try/catch along with response.ok and response.status to help in handling these errors.

“A JavaScript-free website that compresses down to 10 KB should offer peak performance, but a 3D city-building game is the exception.” Thus begins @robmwilc’s entertaining, instructional, and impractical journey into building a 3D city solely with HTML and CSS.

Ever consider dockerizing a Next.js application? @francescoxx shows us how it’s done, explaining to us when it makes sense to run Next.js in a Docker container rather than reaching for Vercel.

Wondering how to ensure seamless feature releases without disrupting your entire user base? This guide demystifies feature flags and introduces Flagsmith, an open-source gem empowering developers to conduct A/B testing effortlessly. @pradumnasaraf offers us a hands-on walkthrough—it's a game-changer for smoother software development!

In this article, @anmolbaranwal decodes the art of finding your dream open-source project through 8 variable options “tailored to be the perfect fit for you”. Anmol works through top organizations, platforms, shortcuts, and Personalized approaches to help you connect deeper with your community.

@cassidoo built a word jumble game that “plays kind of like the New York Times Connections game”, and walked us through their process from ideation to execution! Learn more about #gamedev through brainstorming, word gathering, AI integration, and the meticulous coding phases that birthed Jumblie.

That's all folks!

Hope you enjoyed the selection. Give a hand to the winners and let us know your favorite post from the past week in the comments below. 👏
