Variable names should be short yet meaningful. Prefixing with double underscores changes behaviour in classes with regard to name mangling. They should be short and enough to describe their purpose. They provide an overall insight into the task and should be kept constant.
Douglas Crockford's conventions Lisp[ edit ] Common practice in most Lisp dialects is to use dashes to separate words in identifiers, as in with-open-file and make-hash-table. Then be sure to document the exception and why the convention was not followed.
The Zend Framework advocates camelCasing as a best practice. Treatment of acronyms in identifiers e. It is possible to write names by simply concatenating words, and this is sometimes used, as in mypackage for Java package names,  though legibility suffers for longer terms, so usually some form of separation is used.
Readability[ edit ] Well-chosen identifiers make it significantly easier for developers and analysts to understand what the system is doing and how to fix or extend the source code to apply for new needs.
What naming convention do you follow? The name can have a maximum of 64 characters. Nevertheless, there are several common elements that influence most if not all naming conventions in common use today.
Please help improve this section by adding citations to reliable sources. The name can have a maximum of 31 characters. Identifier length rules are routinely contested in practice, and subject to much debate academically.
Package names are camel case excepting pragmata—e. Delimiter-separated words[ edit ] One approach is to delimit separate words with a nonalphanumeric character. Server names can contain a maximum of characters and consist of any characters except: Locally scoped variables and subroutine names are lowercase with infix underscores.
Hungarian notation[ edit ] Perhaps the most well-known is Hungarian notationwhich encodes either the purpose "Apps Hungarian" or the type "Systems Hungarian" of a variable in its name.

Use the following naming conventions for a workstation: When you add a workstation to a Windows Server domain, you must use the name created for the computer by the network administrator.
Chemistry: Nomenclature & Writing Chemical Formulas Notes Nomenclature is the process of naming chemical compounds based on their chemical formula.
There are different naming rules for each of the following three types of compounds. Note: In my naming of the project, ES is the client, eLearning is the app, Domain is the component PS: other questions on namespace naming conventions I have found on SO address different issues. So not a duplicate as far as I can determine.
C# Types Naming Conventions Some aspects of the C# Language 4 Casing Words are capitalized (z.B. ShowDialog) with different index types. Nested types Some aspects of the C# Language 13 The native functions run in the same application domain that calls them.

Some naming conventions represent rules or requirements that go beyond the requirements of a specific project or problem domain, and instead reflect a greater overarching set of principles defined by the software architecture, underlying programming language or other kind of cross-project .Download
