When developing something such as a website or custom web application, it’s important to have some standardized practices in place. This is less important when it’s just one person doing all the designing, but when a team is involved, things become a little bit more complicated.
If several web developers or web designers are all using different practices, then there’s no uniformity. When trying to tweak others’ code or change peoples’ style, you’ll spend much wasted time trying to figure out peoples’ way of laying out their own code.
When designing a website, wasted time is lost money and simply adds up to more stress as the deadline approaches.
It’s a wonderful idea to have a “cheat sheet” when it comes to web development when working in a team. This can save time, energy, and frustration in the long run when dealing with people who have different standards of quality.
It’s nice, especially in the ever-changing world of Information Technology, to have a pat-answer when it comes to questions like “Why don’t we do it this way?” (the answer there can be, “Because it’s not in our standard practices,” and can be looked upon when the next review comes about.)
Any web development firm from small to large can benefit from having standardized “best practices” in place. Baytech Web Design certainly does. Having best practices has helped Baytech Web Design to be efficient and economical without wasting time or money in dealing with different standard levels.
