Random notes #1

  • Stop giving files weird names ie Am$zing-song_1.mp3
  • Stop caching if you don’t understand your business type (think about the customers, they don’t want to see your outdated data or weird glitches)
  • Stop assuming an operation was a success if there were no errors. Especially with internal APIs built by a dev 10 years ago..
  • Stop using database when a simple text file can do the job.
  • Stop writing tests for basically everything.
  • Stop increasing CPU/ram each time site slows down, just because it’s one click away!
