Over the years, I've had the pleasure (and sometimes pain) of being involved in writing and maintaining the internal coding standards documents for nearly every company I've ever worked for. I present to you the latest incarnations of my efforts: a zip file containing C# and VB.NET editions of my reference coding standards. I certainly don't expect everyone to agree with my standards but I hope by posting these, your development team can get a head start towards documenting your own.
So forward this post and encourage your dev team to grab them, customize them and share them with friends.
