camelCaps are also known as Hungarian Notation among VB developers in particular...comes from combining a 3-letter abbreviation in front of a variable or function name that denotes what the object is, and then camelCapping(?) the words together so:
strSomeExampleString = "An example string."
The term Hungarian comes from Microsoft programmer Charles Simonyi, who used it at Microsoft, and encouraged it's use in VB, and happens to be Hungarian. Plus, he would joke that it kind of looks like Hungarian...
