80 code-writing tips from real developers

Earlier this year, we reached out to hundreds of developers, across a wide variety of industries, and asked them to share advice for other developers. The question we wanted to answer was, “What is the best piece of advice you have for a developer or a team of developers to write better code?”

To help you find the advice that’s best for you, we organized these tips into 8 chapters, with additional resources to help you put this advice into action.

  • Selecting the Right Tools.
  • Understand the Role of Testing.
  • Writing Maintainable and Sustainable Code.
  • Starting with the Requirements.
  • Learning, Education, and Career Development.
  • Code Review and Profiling.
  • Collaboration on Development Teams.
