    With PascalCase, the first letter of every word in the identifier is upper case.

    With camelCase, the first letter of the first word in the identifier is lower case, while the first letter of every subsequent word is uppercase.

    In camel casing, names start with a lower case but each proper word in the name is capitalized and so are acronyms. For example, commonly used tokens in many languages such as toString, checkValidity, lineHeight, timestampToLocalDateTime, etc. are all examples of camel casing.

    Pascal casing is similar to camel casing except that the first letter also starts with a capital letter (SomeClass instead of someClass).

    1. Camel Case (ex: someVar, someClass, somePackage.xyz).
    2. Pascal Case (ex: SomeVar, SomeClass, SomePackage.xyz).
