How to prevent algae?

I was looking through the forum and I can see lots of people with questions on how to treat the type of algae they have but none on how to prevent it in the first place. I'm not entirely new to tanks but every tank I've had has had problems with algae and im starting a 10 gallon soon for a betta and I plan to heavily plant it, but I realllllly don't want to have algae again its my worst enemy. Any tips or tricks to help keep it away? I know healthy tanks aren't entirely free from it but a healthy tank also isn't entirely overrun by it. Other than regular water changes and shorter light cycles is there anything beyond that?
