The CodeNewbie Writers of the Month Awards is a monthly "awards ceremony" here on CodeNewbie Community where we showcase three standout writers from the month before. These three folks authored posts that our judges deemed particularly helpful to the community. We announce the award-winners during the first week of each month. Thanks to all of you for your fantastic contributions to this space! ❤️
In no particular order, here are the winners of the CodeNewbie Writers of the Month Awards for April 2021...
Xavier Jouvenot (@xav83 ) — "CNC 2021 – Write More Challenge – First Mission
Kudos to Xavier for signing up for the #CNC2021 under the Write More challenge. We'd say Xavier is off to a pretty great start!
Check out their post to see how they are mapping out the challenge and their writing process. Pretty awesome!
P.S. If you'd like to sign up to "Code More", "Start Coding", "Get a Job", or "Write More" (like Xavier), you can do so here
Jessica Veit (@jessyve ) — "What Clean Means and Why You Should Care"
As Jessica says, "clean" is a term that gets thrown around in the software development industry quite a lot. It's easy to get confused about the true meaning of "clean code" — or even assume you know what it means!
In this article, Jessica breaks down the benefits of clean coding and why it's relevant to developers of all levels.
Ender Minyard (@ender_minyard ) — "What Everyone Must Know About Memory"
This is such a clear and to-the-point primer on memory in computer science that the article was selected as a #compsci101 resource! If you haven't checked it out, the #compsci101 tag is granted by moderators to articles that are perfect for absolute beginners looking for better computer science resources.
Great work breaking down primary memory, secondary memory, and the CPU, Ender!
Congrats to our CodeNewbie Writers of the Month! Keep up the great work and you might just be on next month's list of top authors!
