What are some good coding practices?

Code indentation: Proper indentation is the most important thing you can do to ensure that your code is readable and easy to understand.

Meaningful naming: Code variable names and function names should be intuitive. Ideally, we should be able to guess what a function does based on the function’s name.

Comments that add context: Even if other best practices are accounted for, source code can’t always be self-explanatory. When code can’t explain itself, comments should step in.

Don’t repeat yourself: Don’t repeat yourself to reduce code duplication. The idea here is that if you have code that’s doing the same thing twice, it should be made into a function. By abstracting code into functions, you can reuse that code and make development more efficient.

Low coupling and high cohesion : Low coupling and high cohesion are different yet complementary principles. Low coupling encourages separation between unrelated parts of a codebase, while high cohesion encourages integration between related parts of a codebase.

Consider your context: Coding guidelines vary across different contexts. Depending on your programming language, company, or industry, there may be different coding guidelines for naming conventions, coding style, indentation, and file structures. Be mindful of your project’s individual needs and honor those coding standards when you can.

What is a good example of working in a team?

Listening: An example of successful teamwork is effective active listening skills.
