Developers’ Guide for Creating Digital Tools

The IDB offers the following Developers’ Guide for Creating Digital Tools to support the standards of the Code for Development initiative. The Guide provides software developers with recommended best practices with the objective of maximizing quality throughout the software development process.

Code for Development promotes the expanded impact of investments in technology by maintaining a commitment to the creation of high-quality, open-source digital tools. This is intended to reinforce a digital tool’s original purpose to support a public good, as well as facilitate its future adaptation or reuse in additional contexts beyond, thus transferring valuable knowledge from one experience to another.
