comment How do you organize your projects?
@emzero It depends on the project. For smaller projects I tend to do the folder option. For larger ones I tend to go with more of project/web services option. The benefit to the way it is above is that I can deploy the web services to different servers. The project I am on right now has some pretty serious firewalls and this model allows us to have more flexibility when it comes to where our data lives.

comment Refactoring an existing MVC codebase to remove business logic & data access from the Controllers
It's a tough call between business rules and DDD. It really depends on the individual instance and how often it will be called as well as the design of the rest of the system.

comment How do you organize your projects?
@Carson Myers each of the top level items are projects, the second level items are folders within a project. Some of the top level items are projects that are compiled into dlls that are referenced by the other projects as needed.

Thanks for the links for the books, I already have a few of them but saw some others that I want to take a look at.

comment What to do about team member who threatens to leave all the time and is difficult to work with?
@WolfgangSenff I just want to clarify a tad bit. When he said he was being "demasculated" he specifically indicated that it was by our manager who is a man, and secondarily said by "our team" meaning me since he gets along really well with the other developer. He did include me in the comment but didn't single me out with it. Now having said that there have been other instances where he did make comments that I then reported to my manager who then actually called him in and addressed the issue. Thanks for the advice, but I will pass on it. :)

Unfortunately management above him tends to treat us like we are IT instead of Development. He really is the best option I have, I am cutting him a little bit of slack because he really has stepped up to the plate for me a couple of times. He also doesn't have much management experience and so far seems to be do a better job all the time. I have a meeting with him about all of this soon and I am hoping that we can come to some kind of agreement on where to go from here.

@S.Lott Part of the problem is that management has been dealing with him for so long that they expect the kind of difficulties that are happening.

@Vitor Braga 2) Yes he has said these things to me. I sat down with my manager and repeated them to him indicating that I would not stand for someone talking to me like that and things improved for a while but are now going downhill again.

@Vitor Braga 1) When I get a bit of extra time I will try to generalize this and remove the ranting. I just re-read it and you are correct that I was ranting. I do feel that even through the rant my situation is common enough to warrant answers.

Good point. I have not told my manager about this latest threat yet.

That would be nice except that there isn't anywhere to transfer to except out of the company, which is an option I am considering. Others have transferred out of the department in the past and changed careers in the process.

comment In MVC where do you put action methods for views in the shared directory?
@pdr Maybe my problem is that I need to put more of the logic in the ViewModel. Up until recently I never put logic in the viewmodel but kept all logic in either a service layer or the controller. Ahhh, the circles are making me dizzy.

comment In MVC where do you put action methods for views in the shared directory?
@pdr The problem is that I need for ViewA to be used by multiple controllers but still only be called through ActionMethodA.

comment In MVC where do you put action methods for views in the shared directory?
"Multiple actions may return references to the same view ..." This is true and I understand it. But, my question is about where to put the code when I want to create a single action to reference a view. I always want ActionMethodA() to be used to display ViewA.

comment is it Ok to have a time for familialization of technology and tools once a project starts
I agree that creating a mockup of the system using the same technologies as the target project is the best way to familiarize yourself with the tools.

comment Customer won't decide, how to deal?
Then once it is on paper take the time to document it in the application. Maybe with help on screen that they can understand.
