Everyone Needs Standards - Dan Gautsch

My session will involve how you can standardize the way you write your code for easier maintainability and scalability. With the advent of so many new frameworks and ways to write code, we often forget how to keep our code consistent. Whether you are a part of a team, or working solo, bringing a set of common principles to your work is important so you're not leaving a mess for the next developer.

This talk will touch upon the entropic human nature when writing code and how to prevent it from happening. Without standards and best practices, code would not be written the same way. Standards and best practices bring order to something that is inherently entropic.

Tools that will be covered during this session will include, linters, jsdoc, and pattern libraries.
