Simple Style Rules for Java Style entails a program's readability and logic structuring. Style is almost as important as correctness in programming. This is useful for you, the programmer, when you are writing code and us, the graders for reading and making sense of a program. Also, in industry and real-world situations, you usually do not write a whole program at once, nor do you only look at programs you wrote. Usually industry programmers are looking at code they did not write or wrote a long time ago, which is where style and comments become very important to understanding programs. Good rules to live by (especially if you don't want to lose points on your programs): 1. Capitalize class names public class Thing 2. Do NOT capitalize the first letter of methods or variables public void methodName() { } int num1 = 3; Notice: In the above example, interior letters of method names and variables can be capitalized. Usually when two or more words are combined into one method name or variable name, we capitalize the additional words i.e. methodName.
