There is a very nice paper that showed up on arXiv.org recently.  This is well worth reading, either for yourself or as the basis for introducing these topics to your colleagues.Best Practices for Scientific ComputingAruliah, et al. Oct. 2012Scientists spend an increasing amount of time building and using software. However, most scientists are never taught how to do this efficiently. As a result, many are unaware of tools and practices that would allow them to write more reliable and maintainable code with less effort. We describe a set of best practices for scientific software development that have solid foundations in research and experience, and that improve scientists' productivity and the reliability of their software.http://arxiv.org/abs/1210.0530
