@MatthewScouten sbi speaks 3, I know you weren't trying to be insensitive, but you should try to take a little bit more care.

comment Why is naming a table's Primary Key column “Id” considered bad practice?
@Chad I'll buy that. but now I'm assuming that Id in the class is mapped to the PersonId in the table. To each their own.

comment Why is naming a table's Primary Key column “Id” considered bad practice?
@Chad I find it superfluous. if I'm doing a join, c.id = m.manufacturerid, is ok with me. These columns are typically "mapped" to a class somehow, and to have a class with Person.PersonId makes me want to vomit...Yes,I am fully aware I have issues.

If you do this, I hate you for making me do extra typing!!!! The table's name is Person, what do you think the Id is going to be? Car? no, it's Person.

You have a table...it's called People, it's got a column, called Id, what do you think the Id is? A car? A Boat? ...no it's the People Id, that's it. I don't think it's not a bad practice and it's not necessary to name the PK column anything other than Id.

I can only talk from personal experience. I've been 13 before, he's never been 38. Stability is an illusion. you can get killed walking your doggie.

your teenage years are potentially among the best years of your life? isn't that true of any years? potentially? I'll trade the late 30s, with money, time and the benefit of some wisdom gained from living for my teenage years any time.

comment New grad with my first programming job lined up: What is the advice you wish you had at this stage?
it's really hard for people to do, typically you're dealing with lots of smarty pants, and no one likes to look wrong. You end up dealing with fault allocation rather than figuring out what went wrong.
