I was very happy to find “Uncle Bob’s” blog. Here is a gem in his latest post on coding standards

“Coding style is a matter of team pride and team identity. Teams should be free to adopt their own styles, and to change those styles as the spirit moves them. Each member of the team should follow the team style, and work to ensure that the body of code is a consistent statement of that style. If this sounds too artsy-fartsy, keep in mind that pride of workmanship is a powerful motivator. We want teams to be proud of their creations.”
