Discussion on: My 5 Favorite Software Design Principles

Just to give even more advice to some beginners: don't focus too much on making sure you're hitting these things. Your first job is to write the software. Spending too much trying to make sure you're hitting all these can keep you from your main goal: finish the project.

Most of the time these things will just happen with experience. I mistakenly spent entirely too much time trying to meet one of these 5 principles before and it kept me from actually finishing projects. As you grow as a developer these things will develop naturally in your code most of the time.
