comment What is the standard for naming variables and why?
Yes and no. To me, Hungarian Notation implies appending type information to variable names, which is not what I am suggesting at all. I simply mean to say variable names should be descriptive. Regarding underscores, the underscores make sense for private variables. Still, I prefer using casing over appending underscores. This avoids breaking intellisense-like features which sort alphabetically.
