camelCase convention


A type of writing in programming[3] where you use a capital letter for all the word parts in each word in a compound word or phrase, and no spaces. It is useful for text-based programming[1] because sometimes you need[4] to name something that needs more than one word and you can’t have spaces. For example: spriteRunningFunction (also see snake_case convention[2])
