so in other words, js is the more powerful language when it comes to client-side browser web apps? There is a C# sort of "compiler" to js though nikhilk.net/ScriptSharpIntro.aspx, but I haven't tried it.

@azheglov, "data layer" was my first thought, but then I looked at this and I figured to go with whatever terminology I saw on MSDN: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb384398.aspx. I'd agree that data layer is more precise though.

comment Most effective way to increase programmer salary besides just doing your job?
I'm considering this, but at this stage in my career I'm not confident enough to do that. Know any good resources to begin learning on how to go as an independent programmer consultant? Is managing the extra administrivia i.e IRS forms a lot more difficult?

@Aaronaught, can you say what you brought into your negotiation that got you that 40% raise? What did you have for leverage that you used? Were you willing to walk if you didn't get the raise?

What about "senior"-level programmer? I am not at that level, but will attaining that role increase my ceiling do you think?

Thanks for the suggestion. Hopefully developing some negotiation skills doesn't require a salesman-type personality to see any results. Though it sounds like those books should apply to most people, including programmers.

While this question isn't marked as answer, it is certainly deserving of some up-votes, and could also be marked as an answer.
