Learn how to create a coding standard, including best practices for involving a team. Then learn how linters can force coding conventions automatically to improve code quality.
- [Instructor] Now that we know what a coding standard is,…let's go through the steps for creating and enforcing one.…The process for creating a coding standard is iterative,…much like specifying software.…First, determine what coding conventions…are available and fit your project or organization.…Out of what's available, decide what has the most positive…impact on the quality of your code base and morale.…Some rules help developers,…while others may annoy and be needlessly strict.…Experiment with what's out there…to find what works and what doesn't.…
When you've made a choice,…briefly document to the justification…of why you've chosen to use or not use a particular rule.…Less is more, so try for a maximum of one sentence.…Once the rules have been defined,…create the configurations for any software you're using.…We're going to be discussing…how to do this later in the course.…Finally, revisit the rules on a regular basis…to make sure they're still logical.…Some may work, others won't,…and new ones might be available.…
