The 10 Commandments of Programming

Patterns 34:29

As Turing descended from Mount Compute – with the two iPads of the testimony in his hands as he descended the mountain – he did not realize that the skin of his blog shone as a result of his Compiling the Code.

 
 

Patterns 35:1

Turing assembled the entire Geek community and said to them, “These are the things that the Compiler has commanded you to do:

  1. Thou shalt not GOTO
  2. Thou shalt not TODO
  3. Thou shalt not catch all
  4. Thou shalt not <br>
  5. Thou shalt not label thy code to break or continue
  6. Thou shalt not bear false witness or side effects in getters
  7. Thou shalt not neglect your curly braces
  8. Thou shalt not desire the Unsafe
  9. Thou shalt not covet your neighbor’s private fields or methods
  10. Thou shalt not deceive with cleverness in names

But the Geek community did not obey, and the Compiler was not amused:

Disclaimer

Neither Turing nor the Compiler may not have actually said these things
