This document outlines our de-facto code standards. The intent is not to be overly legalistic, but rather to give a solid set of guidelines to which developers are expected to adhere. The primary motivation is two- fold:  code consistency and  best practices. By maintaining consistency in coding styles and conventions, we can ease the burden of legacy code maintenance, and mitigate risk of breakage in the future. By adhering to best practices, we ensure optimized page loading and performance.
