The plugin quick reviews I recently did (Plugin Competition roundup, part 1, part 2) got two consequences so far. First, they generated some feedback from readers asking for insights or advices, and second, they quite left me in perplex astonishment regarding how many coders ship plugin with messy code.

About the second point, I threw together some personal thoughts and tips about how, and why, keeping plugin sources clean. Very common sense and obvious stuff for anyone who is a bit serious about maintaining code, but I hope this will make a decent pointer for novice coders (or just messy people:)
