Whats in a Name?

Ever had the onerous task of going throw someones code? Oh! that's painful, not because the person did not know how to make something work, but because his naming convention was awry.

The funny part was I spent about five days to understand the coding style of the person whose code I was trying to understand and just half a day to port the whole stuff into a different programming language. If only he had used a sensible conventions, I would have been saved of this trouble.

Since I am using .NET I direct you here to a beautiful link on .NET Programming Standards and Naming Conventions.
