I'm very much a loner when it comes to coding and I've been fortunate in most of my jobs. I have a particular way of working, of naming variables, for example, and code layout. In my present job, I followed on from a guy who wrote code that wasn't easy to follow, and now I have a colleague who doesn't follow my 'rules'. This doesn't cause problems, just minor niggles, but one thing I've never encountered is documented coding procedures anywhere I've worked. Maybe there should be a global committee on coding rules then anyone who was familiar with the rules could more easily understand code written by someone else (who adhered to the rules). Anyone willing to start such a ball rolling? I'm willing to share my 'rules' for consideration.
