On NETTUTS.com today Burak Guzel has written up some good tips on how to make your code much more readable (and easier to maintain in the future. Not all of them are directly PHP related, but they are general enough to be applied in other places in your development.

Tips included in the list cover topics like:

  • comments & documentation
  • code grouping
  • avoiding deep nesting
  • using consistent temporary names
