Naming Conventions – Four Esoteric Issues
As a relatively new architect-level hire at Mercury, I have spent a large amount of time exploring code bases that are new to me. In that exploration, I have come across a variety of source code peculiarities and problems related to issues with naming conventions. These are fairly rare situations and as such can take a while to diagnose and get to the true root problem. The issues I will describe below are specific to situations in Mercury’s development process, but might help to identify possible pitfalls in yours.
