This is a good article, but fails to explain what DRY is, thus the target audience (less experienced developers) cannot replace their understanding of DRY with what it really is.

DRY is not about repeating code, but repeating solutions. Don’t repeat solutions that cover the same use cases, reuse them. That’s the idea, and it is fundamentally different from “don’t repeat code”.
