comment Pros and Cons of holding all the business logic in stored procedures in web application
+1 for scalability. While most DBs are incredibly fast, and so handle a large load, they are also incredibly expensive to scale (SQLServer, Oracle, and DB2 anyway).

Well, in my situation dev's can't have their own DB, both in Oracle and DB2, because the "free" ones don't support all the features of the "real" ones.

comment Moving away from .Net to Ruby and coping without intellisense
I struggled with this too, and I think its a very real roadblock for anyone who wants to move from a strongly typed language to Ruby. I tried to ask a group of 3 professional Ruby devs that I was having lunch with at CodeMash this year, wondering if it was hard to keep track of other peoples naming in a team environment, and they all said "no, because we use names that make sense". It seemed like a bit of a generic answer, but... Anyway, I voted to move this to programmers.stackexchange, because it is more subjective. Hopefully someone has some good advice.

+1 for noting development and testing methodologies. I think most people forget to mention those.

comment Best example for mixins in .NET
Agreed the concept of a mixin isn't language specific. I just assumed (possibly falsely) that the original question was talking about "ruby style mixins" since it is the most "modern" language that i know of that supports them.
