    A recent poll wanted to know if programming standards are still in use in development organisations... and if they are controlled. The question was: does your organisation implement programming/coding standards?

    None...............................20%
    Yes, but without control.....49%
    Yes, with control...............31%

    Participants: 369

    Source: http://www.methodsandtools.com

    A majority of the participating organisations have coding standards... and a majority does not control them ;o) What is the situation at your location? Does this lack of control really hurt?

    As a freelance contract developer, I often switch between companies and projects. I favor programming standards but often found that they are difficult to implement/control. I hope that having a broader knowledge of what is happening in other organizations and what other people think about it will help me to persuade my fellow developers .
