Now Hungarian notation is not used anymore, as it's even discouraged by Microsoft. However, reading this article is a must-do for every coder, especially for the nostalgic ones. ;-)
Rise and fall of the Hungarian notation
wAddressI recently stumbled on the Making Wrong Code Look Wrong article, which reminded me about the Pascal coding I was doing with my friends on MS-DOS and Windows 3.x back in 1993. At that time we were using Hungarian notation widely, partly because of studying on the mythical Programming Windows book by Charles Petzold; now, reading this article, I finally understand that the notation we were using was not the one meant by Microsoft's programmer Charles Simonyi (who invented it), but a far less useful variation of it used by many coders, including Petzold. We were having a lot of fun, anyway!
