I thought this website on coding conventions was pretty cool.. learned some things that I never knew before:
I was just wondering:
If there are any conventions in particular you agree or disagree with (and why)
If this would be worthy of being a 'sticky post' as I think a lot of new coders would gain valuable knowledge from learning modern coding conventions.
One topic, for example, that I never considered were the possible issues associated with throwing exceptions inside of a destructor.
Another involves the coding out large blocks of code:
You can't use /**/ style comments because comments can't contain comments and surely a large block of your code will contain a comment, won't it?
If there was something of interest you weren't aware of before reading, please share.
