Have you heard about the two hardest things in computer science? It's cache invalidation and naming things. I want to focus on the second one.

Let's see common examples of both good and bad naming. What's the common part of each of them? What's makes names good? Can we settle on good enough or should we aim for perfect names? I'll show some of good and bad practices so you'll be able to recognize both of them when you make code review for your peers. Naming is one of the two hardest things in CS, so I don't claim to be right about everything but I'm open to discussion and happy to learn from you as well.

Brilliant talk by a really great speaker it was pleasure to listen Paweł talk (saw him first on PHPers 2019 in Poznań). Not disappointed at all, would hear it again
