Top 5 things I wish I had known in Apex which would have helped me for Java Developer

Hi Guys,
I started my career from Java development background and moved to Salesforce a while back. My transition to Salesforce in the world of Apex and visual force was quick but bumpy because there were some concepts in Apex which I did not know and had to learn in the transition. I am in the process of creating content which would help Java developers quickly transition to Salesforce and would like to get some feedback from you guys. This would  really help java developers to quicly transition to Salesforce(apex, visual force and lightning). Here are some topics which I was thinking which really hurt me.
1. Point and click configuration capabilities of salesforce( workflows, process builders and their impact on custom code)
2. Order of executions
3. Governor limits
4. Soql
5. Development
6. Visual force controllers and MVC
7. Debugging and Development.
What do you guys think are the top 3 things which you wish you had known and saved you time before you had started your first code in Salesforce?
