comment Will a Bachelor of Science in something other than Computer Science hurt a career in software development?
...you have to determine that you're not going to let your future or career satisfaction rest in somebody else's hands. If they won't invite you to their party, throw your own.

No, not really. If you have the programming abilities and business abilities, what does the other company provide you? Bullet points on your resume? What are you gonna do, not hire yourself without them? A lot of people think that it's all or nothing, but you can start a sw company part time and build your market share that way. My point is this... you will find the lack of a CS degree to be a hinderance. For every x jobs you'd get with one, you'll lose y jobs without it. You will always be competing with people that have the degree. So at that point...

In C# you also have access to real pointers, which means you have the option of using them if you need them.

comment Finding a new programming language for web development?
Your needs aren't beside the point when the point is that you're asking a bunch of complete strangers on the internet which language you should choose. That's why the highest voted answer atm is "Good Luck".

comment How do I create my own programming language and a compiler for it
Thanks for the edits, unknown person. I tried a couple of times but couldn't get my thoughts focused enough for the description... but didn't want to not mention the book. The book is now online at the Study Plan link: www1.idc.ac.il/tecs/plan.html. It's also very reasonably priced online. Enjoy everybody.

comment Not getting paid for hours you've worked?
@Mercfh - "Oh thats not bad then." - Except that overtime is time and a half, and comp time is pretty much always straight time. So you're still losing out.
