It is worth considering that Damian made a point of doing 256 best
practices (2**8). So an indeterminate number of those may only be
Some I think are critical (such as using bare returns from subs
instead of returning undefined), but others are window dressing. In
my experience, I think there is a lot of good practices in there, but
trying to implement all of the practices in that book for a multiple
person development is insanity. The overhead of debating the merits
of controversial practices is more harmful than the practices
