Style guides make code collaboration easier.

In this week's Monday By Noon article Jonathan Christopher covers establishing style guides in code to make collaboration between multiple developers easier.

Although it may seem like an anal attempt at control style guides can go along way in making a lot things easier in the project workflow. Reading through and fixing bugs in someone else's code, less conflicts will occur when merging branches and the speed at which new features can be added are all fringe benefits.

As Jon said: "It helps with everything from readability to quality control and especially helps a team become that much more cohesive." So, do it.
