If so, is it something that you are willing to share? I'm trying to get some ideas for my company. This is for your internal developers, not for your 3rd party tools that your company may have for the outside developers.

My team does, but I can't share it. It started out as a list of things we needed to train people on, then how to do so, then best practices.

Nothing. Sink or swim, baby!

Of course the development staff consists of just six very senior-level developers.

It's been quite a while since I worked at a place like that. But here's a possibility you might not had thought of. Check out some of the big open-source projects. They often have developer guidelines. Unlike corporate developer's guides, they aren't likely to have any guidelines relating to Human Resources factors or departmental considerations, but you will find coding, design and documentation standards.

Actually, I have my own personal guidelines, but I've never formally codified them, since the only person following them is me (when I don't break them myself ).
