After writing code for many years, computer programmers develop a certain style, or method, of writing their code. Some of this is for aesthetics, like how much one indents a line of code. Some of it is for user interaction, like using verbose error messages. Some of it is for allowing easy code maintenance, like using comments. And some of it is for limiting the affects of bugs, like using assertions.

In this document I will try to describe my style. Some of it will be just my preference but some of it, I feel, helps me be a more productive computer scientist. I'm hoping this will either help others improve their coding style, or will inspire others to help me with mine.
