Event Naming

AgileData.io is very flexible and allows you to name your Concepts, Details and Events in any way that makes sense to you or your organisation.

Here are a couple of patterns we have seen people adopt. Feel free to pick one and use it or make up your own naming standards/ontology/taxonomy.
