Coding Rules


  • tab four (4) spaces
  • do not cut off long lines
  • use spaces and not tabs
  • ordering rules may be broken if needed for functionality or practicality


  • private variables and methods must start with an underscore (_)
  • variable names use camel case starting with a lowercase letter (variableName)
  • method and function names use camel case starting with a lowercase letter (methodName)
  • class names use camel case starting with an uppercase letter (ClassName)
  • constant names are all uppercase and words are split with an underscore (CONSTANT_NAMES)


  • in classes, order variables by type and then name unless an alternate order is required to function
  • primitive before non primitive
  • with primitive types, largest to smallest
  • order non primitive types alphabetically


  • in class interfaces everything is indented at least one level
  • in class interfaces in scopes that are specified, indent the method and variable declarations in that scope an additional level
  • declare variables before methods in a scope
  • variable names are not included in the interface
  • method comments are in the implementation
  • variable comments are in the interface
  • constructors and destructors are declared first in their scope
class ExampleClass {
    int _privateVariable;
        bool status;
        int something(int);

Conditional Statements

  • else and else if statements take place the line after a closing bracket
  • no break on default case in switch statement
  • in switch statement, break statements share the same indent level as a case statement
  • always use brackets, even with single line statements
if (false) {
else {

switch (1) {
    case 2:


  • in for loops, use the letter i to count iterations
  • in nested for loops, use alphabetically increased letters from the letter i as iteration counters (i, j, k, ect)
  • always use brackets or ; to declare that there is no code to be run each loop
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++);
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
    for (int j = 0; j < 10; j++) {


  • comments for variables take place on the same line as the variable
  • method and function comments must always be multi-line comments
  • method and function comments describe the method or function and then specify the the parameters and return with a short description (if needed) of each
  • code blocks of over 20 lines can have their end bracket commented
 * increases a number by 1
 * param: num, the integer number to increase
 * return: num increased by 1
int func(int num) {
    return num + 1;


  • if, for, switch and while statements are followed by a space before the open parentheses
  • the close parentheses for these statements is followed by a space before the open curly bracket
  • when the parentheses is followed by a semicolon, there is no space
  • in for statements, each semicolon is followed by a space unless it is empty
  • for method and function declaration, there is no space between the end of the name and the open parentheses
switch (1) {
    case 2:
if (true) {
else if (false) {
else {
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++);

while (false) {

do {
} while (true);


  • order includes in order of priority then alphabetically
