Valentin Galea: Live Coding Standards

25th February 2019 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from C++ London February

Coding conventions, guides and standards are a perennial effort of software development. Lots of effort goes into preparing and advocating them but arguably less in following them. Part of this is caused because they are usually documents relegated outside the main dev work. We will show a novel model that we apply at Splash Damage whereby the coding standard is a 'live' source code file that is 1st class citizen in the main source code. We will quickly showcase the standards, how they are followed, maintained and evolved continuously by a full team of developers.
