Nice post, I would add a few things:

  • declarative code: strive to write code which describes 'what', not 'how'. SQL and rules engines are examples of tools that help you write very declarative programs.
  • genericity: code is more reusable when it does not deal at all with specifics.
  • enforce separation of concerns by programming to abstractions, typically by using polymorphism (e.g interfaces)
  • code is not an asset, it's a liability.
