Oh, I see you've edited your question to mention that you're using vb.net. I'll leave my answer here in case anyone finds it useful.

comment How far to go with typedef'ing primitive types like int
Note that this creates the impression that it's type-safe, but it not at all - the typedefs just create aliases, but nothing stops you from passing for example a Minute to a function that has an argument declared as type Second.

comment Logging, do you do it?
So, you're a genius who never creates bugs, but you need logging to show that all bugs are the fault of other people who are dumber than you? :rolleyes:

comment Is it better to document functions in the header file or the source file?
@Steve314 ofcourse I didn't say that you'd never want to look at the source code of some library - but that wouldn't be the first place you'd look for what the API looks like and how to use it.

comment Can CSS be considered a DSL?
@Rein that's what DSLs are often used for. But I agree that "DSL" is a somewhat vague term and that other people may use it differently. You could even make it so vague that you could call almost any programming language a DSL for some arbitrary domain...
