Volker Dusch:
Errors will be fixed. Warnings will be 'looked at'
October 04, 2012 @ 08:25:43

In a new post to his site Volker Dusch shares his thoughts about warnings in coding style checks (and how they differ from real errors).

When it comes to coding standards there is one rule that always makes me cringe when I stumble upon it: "Lines SHOULD be less than 120 chars long. If not a warning will be issued." Let me try to make a point why I consider WARNINGS in coding guideline checks hurtful.

He defines a warning first, so there's no confusion (something that should be done, but doesn't have to) and why he thinks there's not much of a place for them in the code guidelines. He suggests that, by having them, they take away time from the real issues, the errors. He notes that "should" rules on formatting shouldn't be added to your QA tools right away. Adding too many of these that spit out too many warnings (not errors) could just muddy the waters and make the developers more confused.

PHPMaster.com:
The Importance of Standards
November 08, 2011 @ 09:28:06

In a new article today on PHPMaster.com Robert Mariotti takes a look at standards and how important they can be when developing applications (both in following them and defining them correctly). It's not specifically targeted at PHP developers, but it does give some good food for thought.

As a long-time programmer, often with a staff of other programmers to watch over, I learned early in my career how important enforcing programming standards is in contributing to the overall success of a project. Not only do standards affect an individual's production of code, but they ensure that anyone else who may contribute code later can do so with a reasonable expectation of consistency.

He defines the abstract concept of "coding standards" as rules or guidelines that should be followed based on the application. Sure, there's more global standards for things (PSR-0 anyone?) but your needs will always be different and more fine-grained than those can get. He recommends standardizing everything, possibly using one of the standards popular open source projects have already laid out as a base.
