Hungarian Notation

Richard Hale Shaw has a nice article arguing against hungarian notation. Personally, I don't use it unless a client requirement forces me to. It's basically for the same reasons he says not to - the tools are good enough now that it's not needed. I can hover over a variable, and see it's type. I don't have to rely on naming to tell me the type.

But, I'm not going to go as far as to say that I "question the wisdom of those who still insist on using it in face of this evidence." There's nothing quite like being subtle!
