I have often had spirited discussions about Hungarian notation with fellow programmers. Well, here is an interesting article that discusses a lot about coding, coding in safe ways, and ultimately Hungarian notation. Something that I didn’t know is that there were two types of Hungarian notation: Apps Hungarian and Systems Hungarian. It’s the Systems Hungarian that most of VFP programmers use. Evidently Hungarian notation is persona-non-grata at M$ nowdays.

Very interesting reading.
