While it is important to know what are illegal names for variable, methods, etc. It's also important to understand naming convention. You could name a method starting with a capital letter, for example, MethodName(), but it would not be following naming convention. The better name for this would be methodName().

We usually talked about naming convention whenever we introduced a new topic, so you could find more on naming convention throughout all the slides.
