Put the Constant On the Left Side of the Expression


Always put the constant on the left side of an equality/inequality comparison like this:
 
if (0 == Value)

This is a good practice because if you accidentally put the '=' operator instead of '==' , then the compiler will detect it. Also, the constant value is right up front where you can see it, not buried at the end of the expression.
