There's a double standard around #10 - "Don't be afraid to be involved in non-coding stuff" that I think it worth pointing out. Men who do this work are seen as team players, so it's great advice for male engineers, but women (and queer folks, and people of color) are often expected or assigned to do non-coding work, but then not rewarded for it. I'd highly recommend the Being Glue talk by Tanya Reilly.

Interesting comment, as it certainly isn't like this in my workplace.
