General Development I like this one: "By definition, a program is an entity that is run by the computer. It talks directly to the CPU and the OS. Code that does not talk directly to the CPU and the OS, but is instead run by some other program that does talk directly to the CPU and the OS, is not a program; it's a script."

I see a lot of massive classes where some things could have been broken down better via inheritance.

I always love sweeping statements when it comes to programming languages (except for PHP that does deserve a lot of hate IMHO).
