I have a passion for creating data driven applications to the best of my ability. I primarily use ASP.NET MVC and C#.

I am currently working with iOS and Objective-C in my spare time.

comment Controlling version numbers in sprints
I don't think release or build being an incrementing number help anyone. Why don't you make them more meaningful? You could incorporate your sprint # and days/time since the beginning of the sprint. This would allow you to look at a version number and determine exactly when it was created.

comment Web app that runs other applications?
If you want a real time progress bar (IE not polling a database) you'll have to use web sockets to keep in sync with the server and then the server will need to update the client as it gets notified of a change, but this whole idea won't work unless the server has a way of being notified of changes rather than polling itself.

I wish you the best of luck, but you're probably going to have to leave if you want your way..

comment Web App vs. Desktop App Regarding Deployment
First off ask yourself what does the application do that it needs to be a desktop app? Managing multiple clients is a hassle for one, and deploying updates is another. Of course there are ways to make this easier, but a website is the way to go in most cases.

comment Good practice for object instantiation in MVC
This is how I do it. I use dependency injection in all my apps, it just makes so much sense.

comment Why does DirectX use a left-handed coordinate system?
@PeterMortensen It's pretty funny how all haters of .NET don't even know what it is. What they're probably referring to is ASP.NET Webforms, the framework. .NET can be described as the base class library and the CLR.

comment Moving from PHP to ASP.NET
I wouldn't touch webforms if I were you. MVC is a huge improvement.

comment Is 25% to me as sole author a good deal?
@Eric My father invented something and has given the rights to another company to manufacture and sell it. He gets royalties, and the things I described above are in his contract. The company doesn't have any retail experience, they make industrial products like metal racks so currently they are kind of just sitting on this. They spent $250k manufacturing and approached QVC, but like I said it's an unfamiliar market to them and they don't seem motivated anymore, so think about those types of scenarios happening to you and how you can protect yourself.

comment Is 25% to me as sole author a good deal?
One thing I would like to see in this negotiation is a clause about what happens if the company is bought out or sells this product to another company. If they sell it for 850 million you should see some money from that. If the company is bought out you should also see some money. Also if the company is bought out you might want some say in it. What if they sell to some company that is going to drop your product or not do a good job promoting it anymore, you should be able to back out maybe? Always prepare for the worst.

comment What Specifications should a Programmer Seek in a Computer Purchase ? Or, What Computer should I buy?
There is no reason as a software developer (we make good money and spend a lot of time on the computer) that your workstation shouldn't be top notch. Go get yourself an i7, SSD, 8+gb ram, 2-3 monitors and an Aeron chair.

comment How do I make an estimate for my first website?
If you want to know what hourly rate to charge use this: X is the salary you would like as a full time employee somewhere. Multiple X by 2. Next figure out how many days a year you want to work and divide X by those days. Finally divide the last result by 8 hours a day. I ended up at $104/hour.

comment Importance of bitwise thinking
I think you should test their ability to learn. Any smart person is not going to become an expert in X when it's really not relevant unless it's required by a specific job. Now if X was a somewhat common requirement in job postings then they should probably know it.

comment Is Notepad++ used in professional software development?
Why should you learn an IDE? Debugging, refactoring, code completion etc etc. Any tool that improves your performance is worth learning. I have a feeling that you develop as a hobby rather than for money.

comment modify source of copyrighted software
You could always do what OJ did.. "If I were to modify this program to work on my own machine this is how I would do it." That way you are just stating how you would do it in instructions to other people without admitting that you actually did it.

comment Should I open up to .net, c# and visual basic?
So let me get this straight. You won't use them because it's a Microsoft product? My primary language is C#. I have dabbled with Objective-C, C,F#, VB.NET, PHP, Ruby and if I had to do it allover again I would still primary use C#. Am I an MS fan boy? Nope. I have an iphone and a macbook pro that I develop on. Chrome is the best browser, VS is the best IDE, and apple seems to make the best and most aesthetically pleasing to look at hardware. So there's my diversely biased opinion.

comment Is There Any Benefit to Learning Machine Code?
@MartinBeckett The question is whether there is a benefit, not whether the benefit is less than learning something else instead.

comment When to favor ASP.NET WebForms over MVC
I started with Webforms and once I discovered MVC I switched to that. I don't know how anyone could defend webforms. Page lifecycle and one form for the entire page? Are you kidding me? Yahoo sitebuilder was probably the intended customer for it but even they didn't want that junk.
