Programming Case Types !Explained
No matter how well you are at Coding. Name Conventions can be a pain in the A**.
In the programming world, languages use some specific pattern in naming variables, functions
“Naming Conventions is one of the two hard things in Computer Science”
Why Case Type?
we all use naming to things we define in the program from variables to functions. In Programming, if you want to name a thing with more than one word you can’t name it with added space or without space directly some times it might mislead the code reviewers/ code readers like
therapists can sound like
Here comes the Case Type with a solution where it has different ways to name a thing that has more than one word.
Today, we will look into the Different Case Types in the Programming World
Camel Case is actually inspired by the animal “Camel”. Where the first word will be small letters and from the second word, the first character will be capitalized like camelCase.
Some of the big companies are also inspired by this. Example like
Generally, Camel Case is used for Variable Naming
Snake Case is naming with words separated by
_( underscore ) and all small letters
Generally, Snake Case is used for Variable Naming
Ex :- snake_case, new_word
Kebab Case is naming with words separated by
-( hyphen ) with all small letters
Generally, Kebab Case is used for CSS naming
Ex :- new-word, kebab-case
Pascal Case is naming with the First letter of each word is Capitalized.
Generally, Pascal Case is used for Class Naming
Ex:- NewWord, PascalCase
Macro case is naming with all letters Capitalized but the words are joined with
Generally, Macro case is used for Preprocessor and constants
Ex:- NEW_WORD, MACRO_CASE
Train Case is naming with the first character of every word of the name is Capitalised and words are connected with
-( hyphen ).
Ex:- New-Word, Train-Case
