comment How much should my project manager know?
Having a PM who doesn't have much involvement in the project seems like a huge responsibility for the development team.

comment Is this a worthwhile course to take?
Thanks @maple_shaft. You're correct that I've never had a more senior developer to mentor me. I've trained myself up and am now classed as 'Lead' with juniors beneath me. But I don't have the confidence due to never having someone to reassure me im following best practice etc

Cheers for your response @maple_shaft. It's reassuring to know the fact I don't have any qualifications in the industry isnt a huge factor. However, I feel that because I'm self-taught I've missed a lot of basic principles that I should know. For example, I've read books on ASP.NET, but they don't go indepth about OOP etc. I suppose I could always read a book on OOP, but then are there other points I'm missing too.

Thanks for your response. I'm also not keen on learning in VS2008 when I'm already using VS2010 at the moment.

comment Taking a course in ASP.NET
Bit off-topic, but do you have a link to this course please? I'm looking to do one myself but don't know which is best to do

I think in that respect I'm probably classed as the 'Tech.Lead', but without the job description!

I think its understandable that a project manager wouldn't understand the technical details of a project, but should the PM know as much as the client, in terms of the workings of the system? After all, how can you manage a project if you don't understand how it works?

Thanks Subu. I just think I find it frustrating that work we are charging clients for, my project manager doesnt understand how it works.
