CamelCase refers to the practice of spelling out the names of hardware and/or software products using multiple capital letters such as BlackBerry, TiddlyWiki, etc.
The use of CamelCase can also be applied to long names or words where no spaces are allowed between the words entered/used on a computer system, thus making the words easier to read and understand versus an ‘all capitals’ or ‘all lower-case’ entry (i.e. JaneSmith versus JANESMITH versus janesmith).
An alternative method is known as lowerCamelCase where the example name above would look like jANEsMITH.
