  • Keep a consistent naming scheme.
  • Make comments but don’t overuse them.
  1. Camel case: The first letter of the first word in the identifier is lower case, while the first letter of every subsequent word is uppercase. ‘lentghOfTable’.
  2. Underscores: That is the use of underscore between each word. ‘length_of_table’.

Also one mistake sometimes we all make is commenting out the unused code, Robert. C. Martini wrote in his book Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship “when you see commented-out code, delete it!”, this helps in making our code clarified and uncluttered. Code commenting is good, it gives us a clear understanding of the code we write but we must not go overboard.
