Standards without control

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



Yes, but without control 49%
Yes, with control 31%

Participants: 369

Ending date: November 2006

You can see that a majority of the participating organisations have coding standards... and a majority does not control them ;o) This is not a surprise for me, as I know many situations where the programming standards are just documents taking dust on the shelves. On the contrary, I would say that I am rather surprised by the number of organisations that control the respect of their programming standards. Almost 1/3 of the participants are controlling the applications and I wonder if this is done "manually" or if they use some automated tools to help them.
