Tobias Schlitt's Blog:
iRefuseToUse aNamingScheme
July 01, 2008 @ 10:25:30

Tobias Schlitt has posted some comments on things recently said on PHP's upcoming support for namespaces - specifically on the ideas about naming classes the could conflict with PHP's own internal ones.

Namespaces are potentially coming in PHP 5.3 (does anyone believe?) and people start discussion about how they can even shorten their names from Abstract to aSomething and from Interface to iAnotherthing. I'm a fan of short names. [...] I agree with these rules and am of the opinion that class names must all above anything contain a semantic. Interfaces indicate what you can do with an object, while abstract classes model that different classes have a common base and can be used in the same mannor. And indeed you can add these semantics to names without using the terms.

He gives a few examples, things like Persistable, Configurable and Reflector.
