in reply to Seeking Best Practices - does your company follow a standard?

I think the biggest problem I have with languages that propose forced conformance is that it is good code. Conforming to a standard is a first step, however it is not a good indicator of code quality. A good example would be Visual Studio.

Visual Studio is a neat product it that it provides many useful utilities for help you program. The code it helps you write can easily be used by other programmers on another machine. That does not mean the code is bug free or even well written. It just means it is meeting a particular benchmark established by someone.

Just because you march in a straight line does not mean you are headed in the right direction!

[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: The fun show at $work continues, as The Big Project is now in its second week of frantic live-bugfixing and weekend releases where nobody knows what went live. Nothing has been tested anyway.

Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/
[Corion]: "I'm here to open tickets and point fingers. And I'm all out of tickets."
