Software developer. I work primarily in C#, Silverlight, SQL, and ASP[.NET] at work and home, but am trying to find a new practical language to learn that isn't quite so C-based. Right now I'm refreshing my abilities in functional programming with some F#. Also somewhat experienced with C++, PHP, Java, LaTeX, HTML/CSS, WPF, and a touch of Scheme.

comment Languages on a resume: Is it better to put “C/C++” or “C, C++”?
@JBRWilkinson - Of course not. I'm saying bulleting technologies like that is not a good thing.

comment What use is a Business Logic Layer (BLL)?
@Job - Yeah, sort of, especially since it's a small app with little chance of code reuse (yet). But it's also partly trying to use the best practice possible.

If I made a bulleted list of every language and technology I'd used, it'd take up the whole page and then some.

comment Top bad practices in MySQL
I'd say that not using CAPS isn't so much a bad practice as it is a coding convention. If everyone is using small caps and everyone is fine with it, there's no harm. It's only a readability issue and doesn't affect performance.

@Oscar - Now that I think about it, your question might be better asked on webapps.stackexchange.com

comment What steps should I follow to start developing website applications?
@Oscar - Not really. If someone else is designing the site, what is it you need to know? How to program the backend? It's just like any other application, just on a slightly different platform.

comment What steps should I follow to start developing website applications?
@Oscar - Designing a site is like designing any other application. Figure out what kind of program flow is best and write screens based on that. There isn't really any set way to design a site.

To me the worst pattern is Copy/Paste.

comment Representing timezone list
+1. I can barely remember the name of my timezone; all I know is that it's +5. Being able to quickly scan a list to find "+5" is much easier than pretty much any other method I can think of.

comment Is it bad to have an “Obsessive Refactoring Disorder”?
@Slawek - Yes, I know, it's terrible practice, but practically speaking if making a deadline is more important than having clean code you have to prioritize. File a report on it and make sure it gets fixed as soon as possible.
