Coding Standards

Throughout the years, TIOBE has build up a huge expertise in defining and implementing coding standards, supporting large and small companies maintaining their coding standards. TIOBE does not only ensure that the rules are relevant to create high quality code, but also puts significant effort to avoid false positives (incorrectly indicating a violation) and false negatives (incorrectly not giving a violation).

In alignment with customers, TIOBE analyzes patterns to derive rules to add to the development process to ensure specific field issues from re-occurring. In order to have the best coding standards possible, TIOBE participates in many coding standard boards in customer organizations, often in a leading position.

The following publicly available coding standards are actively maintained by TIOBE:
