INN10: The programmer’s guide to the galaxy: how programming style guides can help you and your team

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

Presented by Mark Whittaker

Tabs or spaces? Camel case or underscores? We all have our preferences, but they can sometimes clash with how other members of our team write code. Programming style guides can bring teams together to follow a shared set of standards, paving the way for consistent and readable code. During this session we will explore the benefits of programming style guides, great resources to get started, and ways to enforce them in most modern text editors.


  • Setting style standards
    • Consistently
    • Readability
    • Mintainability
    • Adhere to standards
  • Take the work of others to start
  • Common js styleguides
  • Cool examples:
    • backticks and templates: `text with a ${value}`
    • use const and let instead of var
