Every company follows a different coding standard based on their best practices. Coding standard is required because there may be many developers working on different modules so if they will start inventing their own standards then source will become very un-manageable and it will become difficult to maintain that source code in future.
Here are several reasons why to use coding specifications:
- Your peer programmers have to understand the code you produce. A coding standard acts as the blueprint for all the team to decipher the code.
- Simplicity and clarity achieved by consistent coding saves you from common mistakes.
- If you revise your code after some time then it becomes easy to understand that code.
- Its industry standard to follow a particular standard to being more quality in software.
