The Universal Coding Standard

Warning: there’s no way the following can live up to the title

Your implementation should be:

  • Clear
  • Distinct
  • Well-Organised


The implementation should have a clarity of purpose and should express itself in a way which helps the reader understand that purpose.


There should be one of everything that’s needed, not a collection of overlapping duplicates.


A place for everything and everything in its place. Put another way, each level of abstraction should be doing its job.
