re: What are your personal stories/examples of "naming things"? VIEW POST


This doesn't really answer the question, but it relates to the difficulty of naming things well.

Something I've noticed with basically every new developer that joins our company is that at some point they ask me "what do you think I should call the object that <...>".

Almost always, by coming up with a short description of the object to put into the question, they answer their own question without realising it. So I just repeat that back to them.
