The coding conventions that makes our lives easier
07-20, 16:05–16:35 (Europe/Prague), South Hall 2B

Discover how coding conventions can enhance code quality, readability, maintainability, and reduce errors. Join us as we discuss the creation and implementation of coding conventions, and how to use linters for maintenance.

Engineers review code as often as they write it and use a lot of tools to improve this process, such as linters and auto-formatters. One tool that is also very useful is coding conventions. It is a collection of references that can be used during code reviews while also serving as a valuable day-to-day reference and guide for the entire team.

This talk will explore several different conventions from the open-source conventions repository, offering an in-depth exploration of how they improve the quality of the codebase and serve as a tool for knowledge transfer among engineering teams.

The structure of the talk will follow:

  • What are coding conventions, and why do we use them?

  • How to establish your own coding conventions?

  • Examples of some of the most useful coding conventions and how they enhance code quality.

  • How to uphold your coding conventions with the help of linters?

Attendees will leave with a comprehensive understanding of the concept of coding conventions and how to implement them within their own team.
