Thinking of a name for a function or a variable is half the battle 😕💭

    Just use the alphabet. a, b, c, d, e, f and so on. It's best practice 😈

    Don't see how this could be hard if you are describing what the variable represents/what the function does like you're supposed to...

    The time taken will reflect how clear your approach is?

    I use qt which also have variables for signals. When I run out of names I start switching the word. 'do_math' becomes 'math_do' !

    A week ago I wrote a class to parse data from a webpage. It had about 30 different functions with almost the same name. Often the same function name that simply takes different types as parameter. THAT was fucked up. Always took 5 attempts till I found the function I really wanted to call

    @MrCSharp Difficulty naming namespaces I do understand! Should it be Company.Services.Product.FunkyService, or Company.Product.Services.FunkyService !?
