I wrote a series of articles on the topic. You can check it here.

Here are the few points that seem important to me in the end:

  • Do systematic code reviews (but it's not enough)
  • Give complex tasks also to the juniors but help them
  • Stay close to the domain of your client
  • Use high level tests reflecting your domain
  • Write explicit code
  • Detect a lack of shared knowledge as soon as possible, and write down everything in your repository/code. Stop this oral culture: act as if your private project was an open source project on which every unknown developer should be able to collaborate
