Use Obvious Nonsense

Delay naming until we have more information.

The Change

Rename bad names to applesauce before you take any time to try to understand the code.

The Value Proposition

Explicitly naming things applesauce helps you:

  1. Eliminate misleading names before they trick you.
  2. More frequently extract code that should have a name.
  3. Get to a completely honest name faster.
  4. Reduce the size of future commits.
  5. Reduce number of things to keep in your head at once.
