I'm an omnivorous programmer who enjoys learning new languages (as long as they're not VB) and trying new technologies (as long as they're not SharePoint).

Most of my experience is in the Microsoft space, encompassing ASP.NET Webforms, ASP.NET MVC, C# and Windows Phone. But I'm not a fanboy; lately I've also been playing a good bit with JavaScript, jQuery and Linux.

This looks promising--can't wait to dig in. :)

comment Real-world examples of apps written with TDD and good test coverage?
Not quite... I'm interested in seeing examples of real world applications. The accepted answer in that post recommends a testing framework. I've seen some examples of frameworks and libraries before, but that doesn't address my question.

comment Should if statments be in inner or outer method?
Good stuff. To address a point made in another answer, I would suggest changing the names of DrawAxis() et. al. to indicate that their execution is conditional, maybe TryDrawAxis(). Otherwise you need to navigate from the Draw() method to each individual submethod to confirm its behavior.

Also, any recommendations on handling form logic like populating a dropdown based on the selection in another dropdown? Is jQuery the only option if we went with the MVC route?

comment How to organize repetitive code?
Thanks for the reply. In this architecture, where would you handle formatting the e-mails that get sent? I would like to abstract this away, but I can't think of a way to do the formatting without creating a stringbuilder and dropping the fields in among the blocks of static text. This seems specific to each form.
