( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I think your list is quite good, although I'd not put functional programming on top. OOP is mandatory IMHO and some of the following you might consider adding to your list.

I'd recommend starting with a good course on algorithms and (especially) data structures since one needs a good grasp of this subject for any sizeable programming task. Unfortunately I find this skill lacking even with more "advanced" programmers.

Another nice skill to have for writing reusable code is patterns (Gamma et al.). Thinking in terms of patterns speeds up development and allows for better code maintenance.

Some ideas coming from the Extreme Programming community are also worth familiarizing oneself with (first write a test, then write the code that will be tested; always do regression testing while adding code). I've done a few projects that way and besides being efficient, it was also satisfying.

Just some ideas, -gjb-

    [Corion]: marto: Oh, I'm jealous. I'm going to see DM in Frankfurt, but it's a stadium full of people, so, rather a big thing where you mostly get to see the band on screens ;)
    [marto]: yes, the last time I saw them was in Berlin a few years ago, at the old Olympic stadium
    [marto]: After Sunday I don't think I'll go see them again :)
    [LanX]: Corion: come on, people are people! ;)
    [Corion]: Naah, I think it's still an OK show so far. Their new songs aren't exactly great, but I'm not going there for new material anyway ;)
    [marto]: I got the feeling from the last show that for big sections of it, they were not really into what they were doing
    [Corion]: LanX: Sure, they can bask in my Halo
    [marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
    [Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
    [Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
