@lig Just echoing similar sentiments here, I would go with 'object_id' as I personally find camelCase to be horrifyingly unreadable.
@oedmarap that's usually the choice made for us. Each ecosystem has its own tradition. I use both depending on the language.
@lig I hear you. If you're coding as part of a team/org then naming conventions are forced upon you.
In that case, might I suggest going for a more structured approach.
If the second word has less than three letters then capitalize it, otherwise use camel case.
E.g. objectID, objectRef, objectName, targetDB, targetArr, targetArray, etc.
Hope that helps. 👍
@oedmarap So, you mean acronyms should be always capitalized. Ok. Then the question is: Is `ID` an acronym or a shortened abbreviation?
@lig Well to my point, ID isn't a proper noun (acronym), so it falls back on the character-limited rule without any further context.
