Top 7 Featured DEV Posts of the Week

Happy Earth Day, all! 🌎🌍🌏 This week’s roundup of top articles is like a garden of tech wisdom, with each piece blooming 🌸 with insights on everything from evolving professional advice to future-proofing tech blogging.

And in the spirit of growth and renewal, we're thrilled to welcome FIVE fresh faces to our Top 7 author lineup. It’s like planting new seeds in our community garden! 🌱 No matter how you celebrate or honor the day, you're sure to do it with a little more knowledge in your noggin, courtesy of the folks on

Learn from the evolution of @abbeyperini's ever engaging advice over the years as a professional developer, including: 1. Forget the obsession with titles; it's about delivering results. 2. Dive into the nuances of code, systems thinking, and the value of testing. 3. And remember, amidst it all, find joy in your unique journey and the support of your tech community. Hear, hear!

Let's take a journey through the future of tech blogging, where AI and human creativity intertwine and AI is a tool for innovation, not replacement. @bcouetil shows how AI enhances content creation while calebrating the enduring importance of originality, quality, and engagement in tech writing.

With this step-by-step guide, you might just unlock the motivation to teach yourself a new coding skill. Learning is a complex process, so @llxd helps us start small, define a good idea, choose the right tools, and more.

Inevitably, every learning process demands making mistakes. @ale3oula makes this process more tolerable by providing us their common mistakes in software development, so we can all embrace new best practices.

Follow along with @alexmercedcoder as they show how to apply functional programming techniques in JS. This thorough deep dive explores pure functions, immutability, currying, memoization, and monads, explaining how they interconnect and work together so that you can build more reliable and efficient apps!

Webhooks or websockets? @ricardogesteves walks us through both technologies so that you can better understand the differences and when to use which!

If you're looking to implement HLS video streaming in a React app, you've come to the right place. @indranilchutia has you covered with this straightforward guide!

And there you have it, our stellar Top 7 picks for the week! But hold onto your keyboards, folks, because the party's just getting started. If you're itching for more great content and lively banter, stick around with the awesome crew. This week's Yop 7 and more will hit your inbox via our weekly DEV Community newsletter every Tuesday.
