You have hit a hot topic there. I have been at war with those elaborate naming and style conventions for a long time.

Hungarion notation is not a bad thing at all, at least if you use it as it was meant to be and not simply as a type prefix. The typical 'we have Intellisense' argument also does not really fit anymore then and Intellisense usually fails me when I need it most. Besides that, I often must use editors that don't have any Intellisense.

Maybe I would not pass a review in your shop, but you would probably pass them in mine. The problem is that if you want to cover every possible case, you end up with a rulebook thicker than the German tax legislation. Been there, done that. With every review some new rules were added and, for my part, I hated it more every time I had to do a review.

The compiler does not care about any of this as long as the code is sytactically correct. Thw whole circus is just for us and I think there are more important things to look at in a code review than spending 90% of the time obscessing over wether or not someone should have captalized a name or not.

We are all intelligent people, so why can't we stick to essentials, keep the rulebook thin and allow a little anarchy within certain boundaries (Nerds and buerocrats avert your eyes). Conventions like using hungarion or not should be agreed upon by the team and then be used accordingly, but it's not the end of the world when someone accidentally or with some intention writes his stuff differently.
The language is JavaScript. that of Mordor, which I will not utter here

This is Javascript. If you put big wheels and a racing stripe on a golf cart, it's still a f***ing golf cart.

"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."

If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
