Why SWE Cheat Sheet?
Set cheat sheets free from the rules
Medium is a great platform for quality writings, but it doesn’t favor step-by-step tech posts, aka the cheat sheets.
Making cheat sheets discoverable requires effort
As cheat sheets avoid click-bait titles and fancy content (on purpose), they (usually) miss curation and rank low, making them less discoverable to people who need them.
Organizing cheat sheets is tricky
As suggested by Medium, posts should be self-contained.
Squeezing all cheat sheets on a topic into one post makes it distracting.
Splitting with an umbrella post to navigate aligns poorly with best practices.
We aim to make cheat sheets discoverable & organized
- Discoverable: SWE Cheat Sheet makes cheat sheets discoverable by collecting them in the same place.
- Organized: SWE Cheat Sheet organizes cheat sheets by maintaining an always-on-top and up-to-date umbrella post.
Due to limited time and domain knowledge, we decided to focus on software engineering cheat sheets first.
