I LOVE your article Emma! Very well done. The whole list is great.
Some thoughts I had while reading:
"...7. Name variables and functions appropriately..."
There are two real problems in computing:
Off by one errors
"...17. Don't gate keep..."
IMO, programming has room for everyone. From toddler to retired.
"...51. Kill your darlings..."
I tell anyone I can '...when the code leaves your machine, it is not longer your code. Let it go."
"...64. Learn design patterns..."
Of everything I know today, I wish I knew this sooner.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
