comment Differences between `throw` and `throw new` and exactly how exceptions “bubble up”
I reread the question. Including the update. The question linked to by Robbie Dee adequately answers the question as asked. If you feel it's inadequate, you will need to rephrase your specific question more clearly.

comment How can I reduce http request while I have hundreds of images and thousands of users
Consider the usage of sprites. 150k/image seems a bit large, but good digital manipulation should be able to group and compress common usage images. Organization of images within the sprites would be key.

comment Steps to begin versioning a web application
What does "versioning" buy you? Will you offer access to disparate versons? Will you have simultaneous versions available? Are you simply attempting to provide some measure of communication with the user base as to what features will be available in which version?

comment Checking if a method returns false: assign result to temporary variable, or put method invocation directly in conditional?
@KyelJmD: That depends on the culture you're programming in. In the places I've programmed in, the !ValidateCredentials is more readable because it explicitly says what it is doing in the code. It's very clear. If the function you're calling doesn't have a "self-documenting" name then it might be better to go with the variable. As it stands, I'd recommend omitting the variable and stay with the self-documenting code you have.

comment My boss has a bad case of “Not Invented Here”
@jwenting: I completely agree with that, but I'd be surprised if any of the suits making the decisions actually got that far in the train of thought.

comment Hidden dependencies - why not?
Lazy loading in the second example requires the implementation of a service locator or a DI container. A factory pattern would even work.

comment In ifs inside for loops, prefer checking for true, or for false and continue?
6 of one, half a dozen of the other. Both achieve the same result, both are easy to read and identify what's going on. It's simply a matter of style at this point. Neither is preferred over the other.
