The issue: "I code like I want to!"
- Other people have difficulties to read the code (open source)
- Maybe someone needs to take over maintainance of your code
- You might stumble yourself over it once upon a time
The solution: Coding standards
- PEAR http://pear.php.net/manual/en/standards.php
- eZ systems http://ez.no/products/ez_publish/documentation/development/standards/php
