  • You consider the legacy of the code you produce, limiting the use of short-term workarounds.
  • You create flexible software without over-engineering.
  • You re-use where possible, while being judicious about introducing dependencies.
  • You are efficient with resource usage (e.g., designing to avoid impacting the system under test.)
