    I'll never understand why someone would choose short over descriptive. You don't have an IDE that has auto complete in 2017?

    Why not a short name (which if find more readable) that is descriptive enough ? :)

    Declare variables to random letters. That's how real men code!

    @darksideplease well you only write once, but read and debug and modify all the time so it's worth it to find your way after few months in a huge project.

    Easy, descriptive, the compiler can make them short for production.

    @sSam shorter lines, that's why

    Tbh when you can't name your variable with two adjectives and a noun then chances are the containing routine needs refactoring.

    Names like transactionalConnectionPoolConfigurationViewHelper is a no no!

    I use vim without auto-complete, always short, luckily nobody else but me uses the code 😮

    @sSam what about in functional programming where the variable name means less because you're thinking about taking a type that could apply to any variable of that type?

    Do both. Make descriptive, then shorten it. Then add explanation to documentation or in comments.
