2011 Hacker’s Coding Style Guide

Can’t stand the code your mates produce? Or maybe looking to improve your own style? Here are the conventions I use and recommend. Enjoy them as is, or fork on GitHub and adjust to your taste.

Table of Contents

Good Code-P? — Which code is good? The one that targets a human being, not a computer. One that is easy to understand, idiomatic and blends in to the platform.

Whitespace & Indentation — Avoid tabs (why?), use idiomatic indentation or 4 spaces otherwise.

Why is this guide so short?

Because I’m still working on it.
