It is a naming convention of variables: thisIsCamelCase Reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camel_case

it is typical to start the first letter(of the first word) lowercased and then start capitalizing everything(1st letter) afterwards

Object itCanBeConfusing = "I understand your pain";

//or you can just ignore the camelCase and type it off as so

String/Object ItCanBeConfusing = "I understand your pain";
