Python Naming Convention > Variable Naming
- Should be all in lowercase
- Not begin with the special characters like e.g. & (ampersand), $ (dollar)
- If the name contains multiple words, it should be separated by underscores (_) e.g. json_string
- Avoid one-character variables e.g. a, b
class Student age = None ...
Python does not support privacy directly. This naming convention is used as a weak internal use indicator.
- Should follow the above naming conventions
- Should use a leading underscore (_) to distinguish between "public" and "private" variables
- For more read the official python documentation.
class Student: age = None # public variable _id = 0 # Private variable
