Love the quote you started with! Personally, I have this as a mantra:
When you write code, think about the poor bastard that's going to have to maintain it six months from now. It most likely be you.
Also, A solid set of rules.
I think that's a more accurate mantra. Be kind to your future self :)
Another one here that had to laugh out when reading the quote. I forwarded it to my group of fellow-programmers. Oh and btw, love the set of practices
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
