Code: 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know

The development website for O'Reilly's latest project in it's "97" series has now been made public.

97 Things Every Programmer Should Know looks like it will be an interesting book. Edited by Kevlin Henney, it contains a series of 97 (I'm not quite sure why 97 exactly, its a fairly weak gimmick) very short, pithy pieces of advice aimed at software developers to help them craft better code.

I have submitted a number of entries to this project.

You can take a look at all the entries submitted so far, and perhaps contribute something yourself. The site is a Wiki, and is now open for collaboration by the wider programming community.

What have you suggested? I'm working up to something along the lines of "It's no good if you can't build it, and if you can build it it's no good if you can't install/deploy/distribute it".
