@WyattBarnett Thanks, That is the point I was trying to convey.

So, you are saying it is perfectly acceptable for one controller to reference other models? in Microsoft examples, they always seem to have 1 to 1 to 1 for model controller view, which is so over simplified it makes me want to vomit in terror.

comment I want to master ASP.NET - What concepts should I focus on/What concepts do you most value?
First things first, take any information about practices or standards that come from the domain *.microsoft.com, and ignore those, also delete any bookmarks or favorites you have to them as well.

In your opinion are you suggesting this could/should be done somehow as a web stateful app? or was that just an aside?

comment How many skills should I list on my resume, CV?
@C. Ross You should only list the skills you want to work on and grow. Don't list the things you know and hate.

comment Software Design: Build it fast or build it well?
It's worth mentioning that 80% of the work is gathering the facts on what it is you are intending on developing. Most developers dive in before knowing what they are really trying to accomplish. If you do your homework and spend that 80% analyzing and planning, the remaining 20% will be a breeze.

comment Why do business analysts and project managers get higher salaries than programmers?
@Aaron: My last sentence was more to be ironic and flippant.

comment Why do business analysts and project managers get higher salaries than programmers?
Bigger salary in america has absolutely nothing to do with skill. More you are liked, and the more you play the politics game, the more you get paid. Programmers are usually logical, intelligent, individuals, who tell it like it is. Executives hate that.

comment Is C++ suitable as a first language?
My final thought. We do not need 10,000 developers trying to write the next sort algorithm.

comment Is C++ suitable as a first language?
It was just my opinion. I've learned Basic, cobol, java, vb6, vb.net, c#, C, and my first intro to programming class had us write our own language. That's how you learn a language.

comment Is C++ suitable as a first language?
My point was more to the fact that OP is 16yrs old. I doubt there are a lot of entry level positions open for C++, even less in 3 to 4 years when OP would be entering the workforce. Sure a lot of people make great money writing C++,COBOL,FORTRAN etc... But I imagine they have been doing it for years. As long as the language is turing complete. Go for it. My point was about future career oppurtunities.

Why not learn a language that has future career oppurtunities? C# on windows, Java on linux? Those are just two examples.
