Hello DEV fam! 👋🏻 And welcome (back) to another edition of #bestofdev by yours truly, technoglot! 🙇🏻♀️
You know the drill by now, but I'll repeat myself for the newcomers 😉. 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! 😊
Without further delay, let's dive right into this week's picks! 🤿
Obligatory disclaimer 🚨: 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.

Similarly, I'd like to ask you: do you ask GOOD questions? If you are unsure, you better read @tkdodo
