I agree with Sebastian that abstraction skills are essential. I've
seen a lack of ability to create abstractions become the downfall of
many potential developers.
Here is an article and a couple of books I found useful for the
improvement of developers:
Teach Yourself Programming in 10 years
"Software Craftsmanship: The New Imperative" by Pete McBreen
"The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Master" by Andrew Hunt
and David Thomas
