Ten Commandments for Egoless Coding:
“Sometimes we must let go of our pride and do what is requested of us.”
—Anakin Skywalker, Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones

  1. Understand and accept that you will make mistakes.

  2. You are not your code.

  3. No matter how much “karate” you know, someone else will always know more.

  4. Don’t rewrite code without consultation.

  5. Treat people who know less than you with respect, deference, and patience.

  6. The only constant in the world is change.

  7. The only true authority stems from knowledge, not from position.

  8. Fight for what you believe, but gracefully accept defeat.

  9. Don’t be “that girl in the room.”

  10. Critique code instead of people
