How to write maintainable code

On the contrary, do you really want to write a maintainable code ?? Which can be maintained by anyone - that makes you eligible for being jobless !!

So better be safe and write the code which can be maintained by YOU so that it helps you to save your job :D But don't go too far which can cause the complete program to be rewritten . (and you will not get second chance to do it !!)

Don't take that seriously, I hope you understand what should be DOs and DONTs. !!!

I remember, we had a teacher for AI (Artificial Intelligence) who has different style for teaching. He starts with a wrong statement and convince everyone that he is correct. Finally when every one is with him, he tells that he was bluffing and tell you the points that you missed to prove him wrong.

In one of such class, he made a statement that every question can be answered as "yes" or "No". But by that time student understands his style !! So one of the student question him asked whether he can answer his question in "Yes" or "No.
Question was simple- "Have you stopped beaten your wife ??"

On the same note, here is a nice article on "How to write maintainable code" which teaches DONTs by saying it as "DO it".
