No, no, no, noooooo! – A Modern Hungarian Notation – Pixplicity

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/24

Some people still don’t get it:

We like to keep our code organized for readability, and use Hungarian Notation as prefixes where they clarify the purpose of a variable.

My opinion on this:

  • Don’t abbreviate. There is code completion for a reason.
  • Put technical meanings at the end and functional meanings at the start of identifiers: software development is about functional stuff, not about technical stuff as the latter changes way faster than the former.
  • You might consider using prefixes for arguments, local variables, instance variables and such, but often that works against you while refactoring stuff.

Been there, done that (;
