DEV Bookmarks / Reading List Excerpts from 2021/2022

An annotated collection of some DEV posts, including my own and other people's work, only partially in order, as a sticky post to be updated regularly. As a web developer, my personal focus tends towards making use of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, WordPress, Linux, tools and hardware setup, as well as conceptual aspects like accessibility, usability, sustainability, performance optimization, and ethics. I also like to read and write rants, and I engaged in the meta discussion about DEV itself and other communities and social media platforms. The main reason to save and publish a reading list like this is to help myself and other senior developers find content apart from the many beginner's React and JavaScript tutorials.

Table of Contents

Introduction

I created this list looking back on my recent DEV activity, bookmarks, and discussions, so there is a lot of content from 2022 and 2021. I thought about putting "2023" in the title, as a clickbait teaser and as a reminder to update this post beyond 2022.

As some of the topics might not age as good as others, and some discussions might be obsolete soon, especially when it comes to web development tutorials and discussions about new and upcoming CSS and JavaScript features, I don't plan to update this post beyond 2023, so I shall follow up with another list at least in 2024.

I also want to thank @grahamthedev for discussion, tips, and encouragement, @ben and the @devteam for featuring my content on social media, and everyone else for their contribution and engagement!

Discussion about DEV, Social Media, Networking, Writing, and Content Creation

There has been some discussion about who DEV is for, and how to find quality content and interact in helpful discussions. DEV might have become a victim of its own success, having attracted a large community producing a lot of content, often from beginner to beginner. Similar discussions arose on other social media sites. DEV can still be a good alternative to platforms like medium, or strict Q&A communities like StackOverflow, and likewise, IndieWeb and fediverse networks like Mastodon and chaos.social can offer an alternative to people tired of toxic algorithms, influencers, and hate speech found on many mainstream websites.

Rants and Parody Posts

As the main focus of the practical DEV is development, let's focus on coding and other tasks and challenges in a developer's professional life:

About Coding, Web Design, and various Aspects of (Web) Development

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and HTML Development

JavaScript and TypeScript Development

Other Web Development Articles

WordPress and WoCommerce Development

Using Linux and other Developer Resources

Some more of my own DEV Content

As an open-minded developer, I am interested in different topics. Here are some of my own articles:

Finally, here are some more posts that caught my attention on the practical DEV, that did not fit in one of the technological or community categories.

Other Excerpts from my DEV Reading List

Meetups and Coworking: where to connect with fellow devs in Germany

Although this is a very subjective list, we are subjects, after all. Documentation and online learning might focus more on factfulness, but I don't want to miss a casual informal chat face to face in the real world.

I enjoyed visiting conferences and meetups and i am very happy that the meetup scene revival "after the pandemic". So if you want to meet me in Berlin or elsewhere, check my posts and schedule. You can also find me on Meetup.com and on LinkedIn as well.

I regularly cross-post articles on various platforms, including my own weblog, open-mind-culture.org, my DEV blog, my tealfeed, medium and my new hashnode blog.

Where to find your own Reading List on DEV.to

dev.to/readinglist is a link to my full reading list, but beware, it will take everyone to their own DEV reading list instead.
