General Advice

Read Function Documentation

Always read documentation of every function that you are adding to the code base (esp. Gtk functions).

This includes the situation where you copy & paste code because sometimes methods get deprecated and you end up copy & pasting deprecated methods. Copy & pasting code without knowing what it does exactly is dangerous.
