Here's 3 easy rules for method naming:

  • There are 3 parts to the name: namespace, class, and method
  • The parts are separated by periods
  • Only the namespace can contain periods

So going right-to-left (:point_left: THIS way :point_left:), you'll find the method name, a period, the class name, another period, and everything else is the namespace (including any other periods).
