30433Company Standards (Was Re:Voting the entire team off the island)
- Jul 1, 2008No, it gets better.
Without a standard, you have multiple logging frameworks in use. Since
logging frameworks themselves are highly customizable, typically
through the use of XML, each team is free to choose *how* they're
going to use each particular framework, as we can't dictate a company
How do I know? Well, that's what we had when we first started. Every
team wrote their own logging, since nothing in the market was good
enough for them. When two groups did manage to select the same
framework, it was utilized differently.
What you wind up with is a complete mess.
Why do we have coding standards? Should the teams also be free to
write code any way they please?
