comment When should var be used instead of declaring an explicit type?
They are exactly the same, var is strongly type but leaves the typing of the variable to the compiler. In this case the compiler would choose the type IEnumerable<int> . You could have fun creating some tests and seeing which one is more efficient in memory usage or access speed or whatever metric you chose, but they are the same.

comment How do you evaluate learning C# from videos for a beginner?
C# in Depth is a great book, it is a terrible recommendation for either a first book (or a second book) or a book that "covers the core fundamentals of the language in a systematic way" (the same applies to Effective C#).

comment What things do I need to become expert ASP.net MVC
ASP.NET ships with jQuery, I would suggest that understanding how ASP.NET uses jQuery for core elements like client side validation, as well as the concept of progressive enhancement would be useful.

comment Transitioning from being a bespoke development to a COTS development house
From the perspective of our organisation I think the selling bit is not so difficult (at the moment). We have solved a bit of a niche problem in a user friendly manner and lots of people in the sector we work in have come to us wanting our solution. We need to be able to sell that solution in a packaged manner rather than custom developing the whole thing each time (with multiple code bases to support).
