NewsWhy you should never use a boolean field (use an Enum instead) Pin

When I tweeted about this while I was refactoring, someone told me: “Using a boolean is an antipattern”… well… now I experienced it myself. From this experience, in the future, I’ll never use a Boolean field again, and always start with an Enum, especially with a Document database where migrating data is a bit more complex than with relational databases.
State management is not ideal for a boolean value, but booleans have value.
