Naming as a Process

A Habit in the Insight Loop Change Series

Our promise once you successfully implement Naming as a Process:

  • you will be able to trust the names in your team’s code
  • you will spend less time coming up with names
  • you will waste less time hunting for experts on code you don’t understand
  • you will have less code to read and understand for each story

Apply team registration code
Subscribe your team to this habit using one of your organization’s pre-purchased registration codes (see how this works).
