Snake case (or snake_case ) is the practice of writing compound words or phrases in which the elements are separated with one underscore character (_) and no spaces, with each element's initial letter usually lowercased within the compound and the first letter either upper or lower case—as in "foo_bar" and "Hello_world". It is commonly used in computer code for variable names, and function names, and sometimes computer filenames .  At least one study found that readers can recognize snake case values more quickly than camelCase . 
The following examples were some of the winners in the Universal Design Award 08 organised by Universal Design . in partnership with if international forum Design and held in Hanover, Germany. The Universal Design Award 08 was launched as a "communication tool" to promote "discussion and debate on tomorrow's standards" with business, government, the public and the research community.
The evaluation criteria for the awards are based on a subset of the principles of Universal Design such as "equitable use", "flexibility in use", "simple and intuitive use" and "tolerance for error". The evaluation criteria also included a range of economic feasibility criteria including "market potential" and "feasibility of implementation".
A number of the winners are shown below to illustrate the many ways in which one of more if the principles of Universal Design can be incorporated into the Design of a product. some of Designs show simple, innovative changes that improve the universal Design appeal of well established products. Other Designs exhibit a fundamental reDesign of a product's functionality, making it more usable to a wider audience.
A full listing of the categories and winners can be viewed on the if international forum Design website.
Information on Universal Design Award 09 is now available.
