Naming Standards Beyond Programming

Naming Standards Beyond Programming

Naming standards apply to areas besides only those of developers and source code. All areas of a software solution benefit under a consistent naming process. SQL Server table names and fields, Source control folders and locations, Internet HTML and Active Server pages all can utilize this strategy. Aside from improving readability and navigation, this consistent naming standard helps staff new to your organization quickly understand the business process and rules associated with your software. If “part number” is always described as PartNum, then design documents, marketing proposals, database tables, and Internet displays all begin to share a common language, which is half the battle in trying to communicate effectively.
