Alpaca Case or Camel Case

Alpaca in Wiltshire A very first practical program on our Learning to Program in Python course that started today.

Even at this early stage, we teach things like good practise in variable naming - standards such as using a consistent case (e.g. camel case where each intermediate words starts with a capital).

I was looking for a picture of a camel to illustrate this, but I found its near relative, the Alpaca, in Seend Cleeve. I know it doesn't have the humps in the middle that lead to the term "camel case" in the first place, but I expect my readers may allow me at least a little artistic license!

print ("Welcome to learning program in Python")
print ("The shop at the end of the steet is shrinking hours")
print ("We's done")
howOld = input ("Please enter your age: ")
retireAt = 75
toGo = retireAt - howOld
print "You have",toGo,"years to serviette"

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
