in reply to Random thoughts on programming

  • Use a thought-processor before a text processor/editor (my preferred thought-processor is a rotring 600 pencil and a pad of graph paper)
  • Document your data and design, not the code.
  • If you are planning to throw one away, throw away that plan.
  • Be sure your tests cover what the code is supposed to do, not merely what it does do (writing the tests first, ala XP, is helpful here).
  • Step away from the code ... regularly!
