Explore the relationship between coding conventions and coding standards and how they can be used to improve the maintainability of a codebase. Survey a number of common programming style conventions, including comments, white space, naming, and ways to avoid errors.
- [Instructor] The easiest way to improve code quality…and specifically maintainability is to use a coding…standard.…But what is a coding standard?…To answer that, let's step back and answer a different…question.…What is a coding convention?…A coding convention is a set of guidelines and…recommendations for writing programs in a particular…language.…Coding conventions typically consist of three…things, the first is a programming style,…which usually deals with the readability of source…code, the second our practices, or ways to build…in architect programs.…
The third our methods which are the way to plan and…implement a program, including requirements,…design, specifications and so forth.…So how is a coding convention used?…Well a coding standard is a collection of coding…conventions, they've been selected and designed…specifically to produce quality code,…including functional requirements and maintainability.…A coding standard is a formal specification…that a group or organization has adopted for projects.…Both programming practices and methods are fascinating…
