Great advice. Specially the part about the debugger. Debuggers should be
banned for beginners. They create terrible habits and foster sloppy
methods (edit-run-crash-debug-edit anyone?) that may ruin your career as
a competent programmer.

Good programmers don't expect to use a debugger when they develop their
software. If you end using one, it is higly probable that the bugs you
are trying to fix is not the worst problem with your project.
