standardized code quality
The effort involved in creating software is often equivalent to a race against time. The increased time pressure leads to stress, missed deadlines, poor quality and ultimately dissatisfied users. Especially when creating the code, errors often occur in readability and consistency. The cause of the problem is the human being itself. Because where programming is done by human hands, mistakes happen. Software developers do not necessarily depend on laziness or a lack of discipline, but rather on professional experience and the skill set.
How many years has the developer been programming? Which code languages does he speak? What methodological knowledge has he acquired over time and what is his approach? And last but not least, does he structure the code properly? All these questions contribute to good code quality. Established coder principles such as “Don’t repeat yourself” (DRY) to avoid redundancies or the KISS principle (Keep it simple, stupid) should be applied.
For example, if several application developers are working on one code, it is often a mammoth task to unravel the bad code of other developers. Maintenance and extensibility are also not always easy, as every application developer has his own approach.
