Principles of minimal programming

  • Define the problem precisely. Do not start writing code without knowing why you are writing.

  • Divide your code into independent modules. This will help in reusability.

  • Identify existing tools which can do the job. Re-inventing tools is BAD

  • You should be able to justify the existance of a line of code. If you cannot remove it.

  • Always write readable code. Variable and function names should be self explanatory. 

  • Comment everything.  Makes you a good programmer.

  • Commit code regularly. Makes you a responsible programmer. 

  • Ask for feedback. Makes you a complete programmer.

  • Always go back and fix bugs. Makes you an awesome programmer.
