re: The Most Important Coding Guidelines VIEW POST


Great article! My programming "childhood" was during the first dotcom boom, and I was raised on mantras of "Thou shall not violate the standards". Of course that led me to desire enforcing standards. Thank goodness I saw the light!

These days, I lead a team where we are mostly not picky about coding style. If one of us reviews code and we can't get a good sense of it's purpose within a moment or two, we call it out to each other (nicely of course). The result? A much happier, trusting and performant team...something that I didn't expect.


Thanks, Chris. And thank you for sharing your experience. Sounds great! :)
