Description Chris Hardy [MSFT] 2012-07-25 09:50:45 UTC
The naming of the PeripheralDelegate class methods is feeling very clunky.

- DiscoveredService(peripheral, error) => DiscoveredServices(peripheral, error) - Reason: more than 1 service may be discovered

- DiscoverCharacteristic(peripheral, service, error) => DiscoveredCharacteristics(peripheral, service, error) - Reason: More than 1 characteristic may be discovered / and they discovery already happened, therefore discovered, not discover

- UpdatedCharacteristicValue(peripheral, characteristic, error) => UpdatedValue(peripheral, characteristic, error) - Reason: C# supports overloading of methods

- UpdatedValue(peripheral, descriptor, error) => UpdatedDescriptorValue(peripheral, descriptor, error) - Reason: If you do not want to make use of overloads, descriptors should have the long way, and characteristics the short name, as descriptors are rarely used.

The first two ones are properly named.

The second two are the same, but can not be changed withotu breaking compatibility.
