And Other Sh*t Hackers Say: a round-up of the most viewed posts from the Hacker Noon Community (now in Public Beta)

Join the conversation at

In working toward becoming the best place for tech professionals to publish, we also created a very productive way for tech professionals to procrastinate — the Hacker Noon Community, it’s a virtual water cooler for the technology industry.

If you’ve not yet got in on that action (Y U No sign up today..?), here’s a round-up of the most popular posts in a few of our top categories.


What’s the best way to short shitcoins?

Shoutout to contributor Han Yoon for directing us to: 1 1
Huobi Pro

Are the top exchanges with shitcoins to short. Bitfinex also has a handful, but they haven’t added any new margin trading pairs in over a year.

And of course, Bitmex is a industry favorite, just don’t get rekt shorting TRX 100x 🙂

What decentralized app do you use the most?


  • Mastodon
  • David Chaum’s Elixxir project
  • Civic
  • Brave browser (kind of a dApp w/ BAT token)
  • Brave, web browser
  • Signal, text + video
  • Steem
  • WhatsAround
  • Brave Browser
  • Pareto.Network
  • 1

Who are your crypto heroes?

Don’t panic — Satoshi got a mention too.


What are the killer features you’d like to see in Hacker Noon 2.0?

If it comes down to a vote, Arthur Tkachenko’s suggestions are currently in the lead —

  1. Editorial calendar with ability to see the queue of pending articles. Like, where is my post in a line?
  2. Some sort of newsletter digest. Check TechMemo or Sip from ProductHunt.
  3. You can collaborate with ProductHunt Makers. They have a separated place, related to goal on blogging. And I think it’s a dream for a lot of people to being published on HN.
  4. Stats like Medium has — but maybe with more statistics.
  5. Some sort of an API and maybe React component, that will help to fetch all author articles and display a “List of Cards” with links to articles. (I find it’s hard to grab all my stuff from Medium and place links at my Gatsby/Docusaurus website)

There are almost 100 replies in this thread; this is really the tip of the proverbial product iceberg.

Check out the rest and have your say here.


Any thoughts on “Shadow IT”?

What’s your favorite old-school video game?

The nostalgic poster designs alone make this thread well worth your visit. My personal favourites:


What are the code smells or antipatterns that drive you nuts?

I don’t care too much about code aesthetics (basically anything that a code linter or debugger would raise a warning about) — For me this is minor stuff that can easily be changed later.

My biggest concern is when classes or modules do not have clear and distinct responsibilities. If a developer cannot explain in simple terms what a class or module does (to someone who understands the business domain), then that is a code smell. If a class or module is high-cohesion then every part of it should be related in a straight-forward and obvious way and therefore, it should be easy to explain to a new developer who does not understand the low-level details.

Add your favourite code smell to the rant, right here.

A little motivation: what are you hacking on in your spare time?

Ain’t nobody in the Hacker Noon community got time to let a nine to five get in the way of their passion projects.

From machine learning based NSFW detection to old-school role playing games, go here to get inspired by the side hustles fellow hackers are working on right now.
