Share the ️Love ️— What's your favorite #beginners post on DEV?

A few weeks back I wrote up a post called What's your favorite post on DEV? (by someone else!) and you all chimed into the conversation dropping so many links to excellent posts, plus some really kind words for the authors that created those posts.

So, I thought we might as well try this again. 😀

This time, I'm curious to know...

What's your favorite post shared under #beginners?

It's really refreshing to hear someone openly talk about their imperfections... but not only that, to actually embrace their imperfections and even use them to their advantage!

I also really dig @erikaheidi's article:

First off, 3D printing is a topic that I find fascinating! I also don't know all that much about how it works, so this introduction was informative and entertaining to me. If I ever get ambitious enough to buy a 3D printer, I'll be going straight to this article for guidance on everything.

Honestly, posts like this are extremely helpful for beginners:

Being confident in file structure decisions is surprisingly hard (at least for me), and I always value when someone comes along the offer advice like this.
