- Work on projects you'll still want to work on tomorrow.
- Break your projects down into as many tiny tasks as possible.
- Remove as much content from your project as possible. Keep only what's essential.
- Focus on your current project.
- Work on your project at least a tiny bit every single day.
- Post about your project on social media whenever possible to gather feedback and build a following.
These previous points are part of the Lartips.
- Finish a project before you optimize it. A released project is better than a well-polished one that no-one will ever see.
- Most software out there is messy. That's why it's out there.
- Aesthetics is important.
- Design for the future. You will be there and have to deal with your current code.
- Rule of Modularity: Write simple parts connected by clean interfaces.
- Rule of Composition: Design programs to be connected to other programs.
- Rule of Parsimony: Write a big program only when it is clear by demonstration that nothing else will do.
(The Art of Unix Programming, by Eric S. Raymond)
- A tool can be too large or to small. The boundaries of any service should be considered in depth, and if built to be small, it should be for more reason than virtue of size alone.
- Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
- If you feel like everyone hates you, you need to sleep.
- If you feel like you have everyone else, you need to eat.
- If you are pulling an all-nighter, keep a bottle of water by your side. It's very easy to forget to drink water while working late.
These points have been taken from XXIIVV's Knowledge Portal.
