Since embarking on a mission 15 years ago to know everything about software development, the only thing that has grown significantly is the list of things I still don't know yet.

Currently I don't know everything about microcontrollers and the .net micro framework.

I've recently decided to go freelance. If you're in need of a software developer and want to know more:

comment VB.Net vs C# debate
@Thomas @WeekendWarrior: Good examples, but just to point out, I said "Functionally the same", which they are. They both compile to IL, so the same set of functionality is achievable. These examples are just language shortcuts for functionality that can be achieved in other ways.

comment Ashamed to admit using jQuery?
Good information, but I Don't think this answers the question. The OP asked why companies were doing this, not if they were allowed to.

comment What should I do to be language-agnostic?
@Klaim @Orblig: This is where you can see it's coloured by the bits missing from my own language-agnosticism. I've added Haskell/OCaml to the functional examples, I've changed the OOP example to Java/C#, I've added generic/meta programming links and I've extended the other domains section to include games, mobile and embedded (something I've been trying myself recently and it's a different thought process entirely)
