I'm an analyst web developer and development consultant on Microsoft technologies. My main focus is in Asp.net MVC, CSS3, HTML5, Javascript, jQuery, C#, and T-SQL. I'm a contractor by nature working around EU.

comment Where to host open source mini-projects like jQuery plugins
Am I able to simply upload files as well or do I need local repo as with SVN where I have to use something like Tortoise and then sync my repo to Google Code?

Popular choice indeed. but is it feasible for my case? Can I track and analyse visits using Google Analytics?

comment Classic ASP to ASP.net or ASP.net MVC
Routing is more natural and easier to understand than the state-full-ness implementation and inner workings in WebForms. WebForms abstract too much away. Asp.net WebForms were developed to make a smooth transition of primarily desktop developers to start writing web applications. They were exposed to the same event driven model and full state of the page. Asp.net MVC on the other hand was written with web developer in mind (Classic ASP devs are full web devs). No transitions (ok.. there was one... testability, but it doesn't have so much to do with app architecture).

+1 This is a very good question JPReddy. I've never had such a long time lapse on any of my projects so I can't even think to imagine your problem.

+1 for recomending MVC. It would definitely be a much much easier transition.

comment Classic ASP to ASP.net or ASP.net MVC
I would strongly disagree on the MVC statement. I think Asp.net MVC would be a much better transtion path than web forms. Heck you could use existing pages to post back to Asp.net MVC controller actions if you wanted to. And model bind to strong types as well (gaining server validation automagically). This kind of thing would be second to impossible using WebForms. The good thing is if they're versed in Classic ASP it will be much MUCH easier to step up to MVC than WebForms. MVC is suited to HTTP protocol just the way the old ASP was, Webforms on the other hand are not. Not at all.

comment How to code on a very tight schedule?
If this project has been chaotically going on for three years I suppose the tech dept phase is going to be few months long. They should first stop developing new features solve 20% of most problematic issues (because 80% of them are hopefully seldomly bumped against) and then start with refactoring. When that's done you can start touching other 80%. But don't start develping new features until you've solved all current issues. Why? The sooner you resolve a bug the cheaper it is to solve. Even though in your case nothing seems cheap any more.

@Jeff O: I totally agree. But since this has been going on for 3 years seems expected to answer calls at those inhumanly hours.

comment As a consultant, how can I amaze my clients?
In software development (especially on greenfield complex projects) this is actually quite more like science fiction. Measuring project success should be done by other factors: usability and economy. Whether users find your product helping them while also saving them money. Who cares if it was late and costing a bit more if it actually does things better than a lesser product that would cost less and would be on time.
