Coding Standards

Posted: November 29th, 2002 | Author: | Filed under: Web Services | Comments Off

Chris Sells has two rules for coding standards:

  1. All code will use spaces instead of tabs.
  2. All new code in an existing file will match the existing style.

Paresh Suthar has some thoughts on the subject:
