In this article, we would like to explain the concept of the camelCase naming style.

Example:

camelCaseNameExample

The main idea is to:

  1. always start the name with a small letter,
  2. mark worlds join using capital letters.
  3. the abbreviation:
    • should be converted to small letters when starts the name,
    • when is located inside the name:
      • must be started with a capital letter,
      • can be written with all capital letters,
      • can be capitalized to make the name more readable.

Hint: using single or multiple abbreviations inside the name, select rules to make, as possible, names maximally readable.

Other examples:
