Good Programming Practice

Most companies with programming personnel do have a document where they describe their good practices for deriving syntax. This document usually contains aspects of programming techniques such as

  • design
  • appropriate use of macros and level of macros
  • hardcoding policy
  • naming conventions
  • conservative strategies
  • etc...

The intent of the Wikis shown on the bottom of this page is to discuss each of these aspects in detail and eventually come up with a consolidated guideline which potentially could replace those documents created and maintained by each company.

We are looking forward to your input!
