"First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement so I must do nothing. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the pirate's code to apply and you're not. And thirdly, the code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Miss Turner!"- Hector Barbossa, Pirates of the Caribbean.
Following a consistent set of rules for how code is written helps other people (including future you) understand and work with your code. This section outlines the coding standard used by Kybernetik, but it's more important that you simply follow some rules than necessarily following the same ones explained here.
