About 🔥hottakes.tech

New programmers joining the tech world are often contfrontend with a lot of conflicting advice, rules or hot takes

  • "Don't use default_scope!"
  • "Don't use ActiveRecord callbacks!"
  • ...

When I started out, a lot of this advice confused me and made me unsure if what I'm doing is bad or incorrect.

The basic idea behind hottakes.tech is to collect different hot takes with the community, collect background information about a hot take, pro and contra arguments. This way new programmers can learn to decide for themselves whether they want to follow specific advice or not. My goal would be, that the site kind of defuses hot takes and basically shows that most of things have good and bad sides and how to argue for certain decisions on a technical basis.

Also, hot takes are fun 🤗
