comment Should one learn new languages or only should concentrate on languages you already know and increase your knowledge of it?
Judging by the up-vote count, this question is constructive in the opinion of many. I think Mark Trapp is actually a computer program written to close down questions.

@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.

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.

How do you make contacts in the industry? Can this be done over the internet with sites like stackoverflow.com, or are you talking about e.g. in-person developer conferences like Microsoft PDC?
