I have got so much of free time that this Quarantine has got me thinking What Should I Name my Class?

How Long do You take to name your class?

    Well... This is quite a long class name.
    The shorter, the better! 😇

    Having to think about your classes name is proof that it is not Data and that you should take a step back and wonder if OOP is worth the effort in your case.

    Sorry, the C programmer in me got the better of me. Btw, in Go, I never had to ask myself that question, too.

    @10Dev JS has had classes for a long time. And even longer without the syntactical sugar

    @p100sch yeah I've never had much of an issue with class names. Maybe function names sometimes (the Boolean ones are the worst. Choosing is/can/should/etc to make it read like English can be hard) but classes usually are just modelled after the real world object they represent.

    I found that, if the name for a class doesn't jump into my head right away, I'll end up redesigning that part at some point later

    @AlgoRythm Correct. The easier and relatable, the better :)

    @10Dev Haha.. That's quite easy but might confuse you when your program grow.
