So along with doing codecademy lessons online I am learning code from my boss at work. He is what some would call "old style coding" back in the days when chat rooms online were popular. An interesting question came up when discussing capitalization in variables. Is the capitalization just a new style or is it necessary for the code to function properly? Also, does the my in the examples below do anything (just there for looks) or does it play a part. The question mostly came out of examples like these below.
var = myDude var = mydude var = MyDude var = MYDUDE
