    Always something new to learn...

    I just found out that there is a name for the practice of writing variables in code in the form "myVariable"...

    I have been doing this for yonks but never realised anybody had named it

    Ahh yes, would that be the wonderfully named "camel back" convention?

    This is my method of choice, however my current OU course insists on camel back. I suppose camel back is more readable (plus it's Scratch so variable type is unimportant) but I keep finding myself drawn back to Hungarian...
