Write Code Like You Just Learned How to Program
"It's extremely difficult to be simultaneously concerned with the end-user experience of whatever it is that you're building and the architecture of the program that delivers that experience."

Hopefully More Controversial Programming Opinions
"You shouldn't be allowed to write a library for use by other people until you have ten years of programming under your belt. If you think you know better and ignore this rule, then one day you will come to realize the mental suffering that you have inflicted upon others, and you will have to live with that knowledge for the rest of your life."

Asynchronous UIs - the future of web user interfaces
Also heard this described as "optimistic ui". It's what iOS apps do most of the time. Assume the thing will work and deal gracefully if it doesn't.

"The Best Programming Advice I Ever Got" with Rob Pike | | InformIT
"Ken taught me that thinking before debugging is extremely important. If you dive into the bug, you tend to fix the local issue in the code, but if you think about the bug first, how the bug came to be, you often find and correct a higher-level problem in the code that will improve the design and prevent further bugs."

Learning to Write C++ Modules for Node.JS/V8 - Jed Parsons
"I ensured that, although ROT13 is a simple ascii cipher, my library should nevertheless work on Unicode input. So even though the Unicode snowman enciphers to himself, you can still use him as a plaintext. I can hear your sigh or relief from here."

Buzz Andersen
"Many web-centric managers and engineering organizations are confronting the “essential complexity” of native app development for the first time since Netscape ushered in an age of lightweight clients, and the response is often to try to force native app development into a familiar web-like mold without regard to the differences inherent in native apps. If you want to develop truly great, Apple-like native experiences, be ready to engage with some serious complexity."
