comment Do the young minds need to learn the pointer concepts?
While Java doesn't allow for explicit use of pointers, C# does as unmanaged code blocks.

comment Switch to Java?
It's also a lot easier to leverage 4+ years of .Net into a Java job than to leverage 2+ years of retail (or similar) into any programming job because your market dried up and you didn't learn Java.

comment A modern review of Java
Java looks a lot different when you view it as a framework / platform instead of just a language. Maybe the problem is that the name is essentially "Java" for both.

comment Will a Bachelor of Science in something other than Computer Science hurt a career in software development?
@picmate - Well, what do want to do? Start a sw company or test programs? Sure, if you're running your own sw company you may have to divide your time, but the goal is to sell software, not test programs. Again, my point is this... if other companies won't hire you to develop software for whatever reason, then do it without them.

...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...

You can always start your own software company if that's what it takes.

I suggest not using dynamically sized disks. Create a vhd approx. 10-20Gb fixed size. If you need more space later, add more vhds.
