What the hell are they for? besides sounding cool, our buddy Dave Sims said he read somewhere that they are supposed to obscure the actual purpose of the product. In a small shop like ours I don’t think obfuscation is a huge priority though..
In anycase, I went a little overboard a few months ago. We have an ongoing project which consists of a couple of different modules, so I decided to call it all “project sealife” and each component would be a different sea animal. We have:
- Dogfish (the watchdog app, I thought this was particularly clever)
the only problem? no one remembers the name of each other’s module. sigh, big fail.
