I really don't think that a novice, that is just learning to think algorithmically should focus or be able to focus on following some conventions. As you say, one can 'learn that for himself'.

First thing to master is putting a thought into code. Conventions and best practices just add a layer of overhead on top of that.

So, additionally, reading code and asking questions to other programmers should be part of the process as well.
