Programming Protocols that Every Web Developer Should Follow

8 Oct

If you want to be a best web developer or you are a web developer it is important that you should know web development criteria and how to write a unique code that is simple and easy to understand. When you are dealing with a team it’s really important that your code should be easily understood by another programmer who is dealing with you as a team or maybe just reading your code. Here, I am going to share some programming protocols that are important for web developers to follow while programming a code.

Functions
Function helps you to reuse your code repeatedly, without writing the whole code. Functions shrink the code statements of the program and reduce code redundancy. Functions help you to make changes in the code functionality, you don’t need to go through the whole code and make changes overall where you use the same code. Changes which apply to the function only will affect the code from its core. With functions you don’t need to memorize where you have used the same code.

Classes
A class adds on to the advantages of your code, if you are developing with object oriented programming language or doing a Java web development. You can easily arrange your code in a class. For example, if you are using some mathematical code then you can group them together and can place under your defined user class and call it using its defined objects.

Code Comment
When you are working as a team giving comments to your code is really helpful for you and also for your team members. Basically comments are used to represent what that code line is about and what it represents. Comments assist you to know what exactly is going on in the code and you don’t need to check your entire code lines to wait to know what the code really does.

Code Alignment
When you write some codes, Code alignments are necessary. When you are writing a code for an application and it contains many lines of code, alignment help you to figure out from where the code block is beginning and where it ends. This helps you to mark the code’s opening and closing brackets. If you get an error and any brackets remains too close then you can easily find that particular line where the error has occurred and solve it. This can save on time while debugging your code. Here is one example of unaligned and aligned code

<code>
<?php
$X=1
$Y=1
If ($X==1)
{
If ($Y==1)
{
Echo”X and Y both are the same”;
}
Else
{
Echo”X and Y are not the same”;
}
}
?>
</code>

Have a look on the code; though it’s a simple code about comparing two variable values, but still it’s really difficult to conclude which block is starting and which block is ending. It would be complicated to add more code statements in the program because you will not be able to decide on which block you are placing these statements. Now look at the same code but in an aligning way which is simple and easy under stable

<code>
<?php
$X=1
$Y=1
If ($X==1)
{
If ($Y==1)
{
Echo”X and Y both are the same”;
}
Else
{
Echo”X and Y are not the same”;
}
}
?>
</code>

Curly Brackets
In many coding languages you can write your code without using curly brackets. Many programmers avoid using curly brackets in their code when that code is represented by only one statement block. And as I said before it creates a problem about knowing the starting and ending of the code statements. Hence, when you are writing a code in an easy and under stable language use of curly brackets is essential.
