comment Should the variable be named Id or ID?
Unfortunately, PHP has classes like DOMDocument, DomXPath and stdClass...

comment Does knowing Latin or other logical languages contribute to being a better programmer?
Latin is inflected to an extreme degree, more so than English or any of the romance languages (though many of them have some varying degree of inflection). The fact that the placement of a word or phrase within a sentence has much less bearing on it's meaning then the actual forms of the words themselves is a different way of thinking to my mind. Latin and Italian are definitely closer than Latin to English or Dutch, but Latin stands in relief, I think, as an extreme example of convention over configuration. At least that's how it's helped me.

I think that it's more correct to say that Latin is unlike most present-day languages in western civilization. Just as learning one programming language may help you think differently about all programming languages, learning Latin is a good way to start thinking differently about all language (human, computer).
