Make your subs/methods meaningful.

Make your subs/methods names meaningful.

Now if only there was a book of examples of each practice :)

    No, I really mean the subs/methods, not their names.

    IMO subs/methods should do something specific, clear and easy to explain (at least, once you have a good vocabulary for the problem space at hand).

    Though, if you have problems naming your methods, it is probably a good indication that you are not doing that right.

    Maybe meaningful is not the right word here...
