Hello DEV fam! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป And welcome (back) to another edition of #bestofdev by yours truly, technoglot! ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

You know the drill by now, but I'll repeat myself for the newcomers ๐Ÿ˜‰. This blog series is dedicated to great, yet underrated blogs I read over the weekend. I believe they deserve more attention, hence the reason I compile this short list on a weekly basis.

To celebrate this 3rd edition (and the fact that I read too much last weekend), I figured I'd make the list a little longer. Hope you don't mind! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Without further delay, let's dive right into this week's picks! ๐Ÿคฟ

Obligatory disclaimer ๐Ÿšจ: Do y'all even read this stuff? Anyway... I'm doing this out of my personal motivation. None of these great authors/bloggers asked me for any promo. I still think they deserve a shout out, so here it goes. The order in which I list the posts is totally random, by the way.

Pick #1๏ธโƒฃ

@juanfrank77 absolutely killed it with this one! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป If you ever thought you can't learn something from writing, think again! Be sure to pick up some wisdom from this one. ๐Ÿค“

Pick #2๏ธโƒฃ

Working from home can be tough! ๐Ÿ˜ซ No problem, @sandordargo has your back with 5 great productivity tips to get more done while working from home. Must read for anyone struggling with the new normal!

Pick #3๏ธโƒฃ

Ah, the newbies! ๐Ÿฃ How should you prepare to welcome them in your company? Check this blog post out, where @tiina gives actionable tips on how to better onboard newcomers in your company. Great read, trust me! ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Pick #4๏ธโƒฃ

Now, now. Who doesn't love a little controversy? (It's okay if you don't ๐Ÿ˜‰) @sonny_ad takes you on an unexpected ride and tells you why you definitely shouldn't be a fullstack dev. Curious? Click that link and binge read!

P.S.: Oopsie, this one's not from last week, but I'm too lazy to replace it! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Pick #5๏ธโƒฃ

Do you even single-task, bro? To all the multi-taskers out there: this one's for you! ๐Ÿ“ข @kristimke shares the importance of single tasking with us and provides 3 tips for leaving behind multitasking once and for all (it will take some effort on your end though ๐Ÿคญ).

Pick #6๏ธโƒฃ

Similarly, I'd like to ask you: do you ask GOOD questions? If you are unsure, you better read @tkdodo 's post on how to ask better questions. Tip ๐Ÿ’ก: don't start with "How can I..."!

Pick #7๏ธโƒฃ

Ever heard of lateral thinking? Bet you haven't! ๐Ÿ˜œ Now, here's a little gem by @krisplatis I found grabbing dust around here. In this post you'll be gently introduced to the concept of thinking backwards. Confused? ๐Ÿฅด Solve that by reading this short yet thought provoking post!

It's a wrap! ๐ŸŒฏ

That's all for this one fam! Be sure to check these posts out and show the authors some love! ๐Ÿ’– If you enjoyed this blog, be sure to let me know below ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป and stay put for next week's edition.

Until then! ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป

P.S.: TIL that you cannot tag more than 7 people in a blog post here on DEV ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
