For us developers it is a constant struggle to find the right words to describe things. Naming classes, functions and variables correctly and giving them context helps to create a meaning, and to convey that meaning to other developers. In this talk we will discuss guidelines to find good names for the buildings blocks we use, to aid in our daily challenge to transport our knowledge by leveraging well worded sourcecode.

Many very practical rules & tips to follow when naming things. Loved the funny introduction to the subject with a group of cavemen. Great presentation style, very easy to follow, concise and clearly explained with good examples from real life. Names make such a huge difference in our daily communication, everyone should follow these rules to make our work easier.

Really good talk about the proper use of language in our source code! Although I knew some of the principles put forward, the context in which they were placed them gave me a better understanding of why we should adhere to them. It was a joy seeing Anne-Julia own the stage with charisma and good puns!

Gut vorbereitet, unterhaltsam vorgetragen und auf den Punkt gebrachter Vortrag.

Very good talk about a subject that many people seem to ignore (to their own detriment). Using good names in code reduces mistakes and bugs.
