Quite a few good tips there!

Here is my personal favourite and absolute must-read for any newborn developer.
It explains how to ask a question in a way that minimizes downvoting, but is also transferrable knowledge for the first professional gig and avoid looking like a fool next time you ask a question to a colleague: How do I ask a good question?

I think it all comes down to this : make sure you did your homework before asking an experienced developer for help.
