Re: Naming a screen section
I hate to be picky, but isn't this something that you should be asking your
programmers or subject matter experts? I would think that they would be
better to ask then cluttering our list? Don't want to sound mean, but just
curious if this is really a topic would be better addressed by people at
your company, not us.
I see where you're coming from, Kevin, but I disagree.
Firstly, I don't think my question was inappropriate for the list in principle - although I'll concede that it was relatively trivial.
Secondly, I know the team I'm working with, and while they are excellent at what they do, documentation and the niceties of naming simply don't get them going. It's my job to ensure that the wordy bits of the project are done right. From experience, the best way for me to do that is to go to the team with suggestions, rather than open-ended questions. At 7pm on my first day back after New Year, my suggestion-generator was a bit sluggish, so I decided to tap into this list, which I have found to be an invaluable resource.
My opinion only...
