some sage programing advice was linked from Gus’ blog today. I’ve got to admit, it’s really on the money.
I can’t claim that I’ve followed the “polish from the beginning” concept all to well, but a lot of the other pieces have become habit. And I can clearly see where polish up front would make things easier later.
I’m a big fan of the book The Pragmatic Programmer, and I think a lot of what Wincent writes fits right in with those mini-essays and topics.
