re: under_scores, camelCase and PascalCase - The three naming conventions every programmer should be aware of VIEW POST


Never use any of those.

One reason: In some RDBMS, column name is insensitive about those cases.

Use first_name instead of firstName , or FirstName and you'll always be fine.


Yep, even in php, function names are case insensitive. A call to someFunc() or SomeFunc() or even somefunc() all go to the same function.


I see some devs prefer firstName over first_name, which i see is a way to confusion if you use , for example PostgreSQL as column name.

I don't understand why they prefer that option. Maybe because it's "prettier" ?
