Class Prefix

A humorous aside to my last post is the prefix I’ve given to my classes- AK. The other goal of Iteration 4 is to create a framework for Attractions, so it can be reused between the editor and the main app. It’s traditional in Objective-C programming to use a 2- or 3-character prefix on classes intended for reuse. The obvious choice would be to take the first character of each word in the app name- Fort Collins for Kids. This yielded the regrettable prefix FCK. I decided to base the prefix on Attraction Kids to get the more polite AK.
