comment Future of a ServiceStack based Solution in the Context of Licensing
There are 0 members of your nustack project, which I assume means you aren't even a member of it. Now that we have the [3,4) syntax available in packages.config makes it possible to use ServiceStack v3 and never pick up v4. I'm reading the tea leaves here, have you abandoned nustack in favor of just specifying version range in packages.config?

comment Is it wise for a high level developer to spend time studying assembly?
One more caveat, if you can't understand this blog post and you're writing code that uses thread/parallel/task/future then you're not done. Keep learning what Joe Duffy is talking about until you understand it. bluebytesoftware.com/blog/2010/12/04/SayonaraVolatile.aspx

comment Is it wise for a high level developer to spend time studying assembly?
I second. You can earn a good living programming and never have to read/write ASM. There are some positions that require it. Reading a dump after a race condition in your code took down the process. Or if you write very perf-intensive programs (like GPU parallelization/OpenCL). The percentage of dev jobs where you will be required to perform these tasks are very small.

comment What is abstraction?
It sounds like you've worked in a place where the devs had grand visions, and there wasn't a strong boss keeping the team focused. When I find myself in an environment like that I start looking for another job (project budgets always over, or small enough company => bankrupt). I saw a tweet recently: 'spaghetti code' vs. 'lasagna code', the latter is when there are too many layers.

Some layers of abstraction (not just APIs) have been so important I would say our amazing contemporary computers wouldn't exist without them. @C.Ross brought up TCP/IP. My favorite would be the x86 instruction set.

comment Some advice concerning Oracle and Java
What a surprise, Oracle wants to make money on Java, and is willing to risk the future of the technology stack to do it. No mottos like "don't be evil" there.

"For my part, I'm keeping an eye on Scala, Ruby and Javascript (server side). I think the future will be one of these 3, but the present is still Java." Here here!
