In this episode, Donn talks about the importance of following code conventions and coding styles in codebases.

You'll run into various different coding conventions throughout your career. Sometimes it's as an employee, sometimes it's as a freelancer or consultant or just a small side project. The number of coding "styles" that you'll see will blow your mind as you work through your career. The big question is ... should you adhere to the current coding convention that is used in the app/file/etc or should you use your own favorite or an industry standard?

In this episode, I'll help explain the differences so you can make an informed decision going forward.
