This document provides guidelines for code formatting and documentation to individuals and teams contributing to Zend Framework. Many developers using Zend Framework have also found these coding standards useful because their code's style remains consistent with all Zend Framework code. It is also worth noting that it requires significant effort to fully specify coding standards.
Note: Sometimes developers consider the establishment of a standard more important than what that standard actually suggests at the most detailed level of design. The guidelines in the Zend Framework coding standards capture practices that have worked well on the ZF project.
