M177: Auto-formatters do more harm than good for programmers
Using auto-formatters to make your code look nice is a bad idea. Mostly because they won't teach you anything about code quality. Instead, always format your code manually. This is how you learn a lot about quality and good programming practices.

M176: Often digital discussions don't work because there is no decision making process defined
Very often, as far as I can tell, programmers are not willing to participate in digital discussions (tickets, chats, boards) because they are afraid of bullying: their decisions may and will be criticized without any predefined rules. The solution is simple: make sure your team has a structured process of decision making, with explicit roles and permissions.
Shift-M/48: Jeff Atwood about knowledge management in software teams
Jeff Atwood is an American software developer, author, blogger, and entrepreneur. He writes the computer programming blog Coding Horror. He co-founded the computer programming question-and-answer website Stack Overflow and co-founded Stack Exchange, which extends Stack Overflow's question-and-answer model to subjects other than programming.

M175: When the customer asks you to convince them, just don't
Say you are an architect, and your customer or a product owner asks you to explain your technical decisions, you may immediately jump into explanations. Don't do that. There must be a clearly drawn line between your territory of responsibility and authority and theirs. They define requirements for the product you develop, you make technical decisions according to the requirements. You don't need to explain anything.
