Use meaningful names¶
When naming a task it is important to use a clear and easy to understand name.
Since tasks represent computations, it is relevant to use verbs to name them. For instance:
- Compute X
- Merge data
- Write to file
When a task is only used to extract data, naming it after the name of the data can make its purpose clearer. For instance, a task used to compute the length of a String may be called Length.
Exceptions are tasks representing mathematical operations. In such cases it may be clearer to use the mathematical expression as name:
- a + b
- y = f(x) + 2b
