Coding Guidelines

We want to provide you with information on the importance of coding standards, and how using them effectively can help us to achieve a variety of benefits.

Coding standards are important for many reasons. First and foremost, they specify a common format for the source code and comments. This allows developers to easily share code, and the ideas expressed within the code and comments, between each other.

It also specifies how comments (internal documentation) should be handled. More importantly, a well-designed standard will also detail how certain code should be written, not just how it looks on screen.
