What and Why?

This is a quick overview of programming precepts that I find most important to observe by both novice and seasoned programmers so that they may generate readable and maintainable code. The question of good software design is much bigger and outside the scope of this overview of merely programming habits. It is my opinion that communicating a few good ideas in a concise form goes a long way.
