Writing readable and consistent code is often an overlooked practice, but essential to creating a maintainable application. This presentation will explain the importance of following a coding standard and portray some existing Java coding standards. The open source ‘Coding Standards for Java’ from the New England Java Users Group will be discussed in detail. How to integrate standards into a project and tools that can help will also be discussed. Finally, open discussions on some specific standards and styles and examples of good, bad, and just plain ugly code.
