Thanks, Kee, Mark and Richard for the responses.
Kee's feedback is exactly the kind of 'top tip' that I was thinking about. It is specific to LiveCode and with very clear 'Why", 'What', 'Where', 'When' and 'How'. 
I'm sure that a couple of top tips from the experts here would go along way towards creating some checklists for folks moving from high-level design or pseudo-code to actual LiveCode stacks, cards, etc.
Best,
Keith..
