comment Cannot understand a certain point in Agile Manifesto Principles
The idea is that if the ASP.NET Dev team, on day #1 of coding, tried to imagine what kinds of controls devs would need over the upcoming decade, that they would have failed miserably, and would NOT have been likely to correctly identify the more popular controls up front, since they would be operating in the vacuum of the Project Planning Room.

comment Is that good idea to add ViewModel exactly same as Model
You don't have to expose such fields in the View itself, but you should still make sure the rest of your code does not allow the user to change their security level, just in case a malicious user tries to POST such a change.

comment Class structure for Entity Framework
I'm not sure how you'd tell EF to use your DI-based -constructor for that Person entity when it does a general query, but I suppose its possible.

comment ASP.NET user control best practices, programmatically or markup?
I don't think its really that 'standard', but its certainly not uncommon. Best of luck to you. You don't have an easy road in front of you, I'm afraid.

comment Functional vs object-oriented style in C#
@henginy I hear ya about 'DataGridView'. Perhaps separate your UI-related code (which will remain very object-oriented) from your data/transactional code, which could be much more 'purely' functional.

comment Functional vs object-oriented style in C#
Why do you "lose the benefits of functional style"? If you need grouping, you can create and nest static classes that group together the related functions. And there's nothing wrong with having multiple functions take in the same type as their parameter, just think about how many methods inside .NET take a 'string' param.

comment Algorithm for a UI showing X percentage sliders whose linked values always total 100%
From a UX point of you, I'd suggest having the total score be presented as a large number off to the side of the sliders. As you slide one slider up, the total score increases over "100" and whatever your "next" button is becomes disabled until the user slides another slider down to reduce the total score. You will never know which of the other 4 sliders the user wants to reduce when they slide one slider up, so don't even try.

comment What to use instead of IDs in selectors in CSS
I used to care about such front-end quibbles like these until I realized it was just HTML-nerd code masturbation with very little or no real-world impact on the kinds of stuff I work on.

comment Why sacrificing good software engineering practices is typically the first choice for software development projects assuming “good enough” quality
@Telastyne, I might respectfully disagree. I can throw a databound GridView tied directly to a sql implementation into a web project reeealll fast. Compared to a properly encapsulated, testable solution anyway.

comment Why use iFrames in a web application?
I feel like iframes elicit an groan of displeasure from devs these days, but you are spot on in that they can isolate functionality without worrying about JS/CSS/AJAX issues.

comment Which approach would be better for persisting these overridable configuration keys and values? A simple key-value store, or a graph database?
If there's one language being used by the client application(s), then your "type_constraints" table could hold the fully qualified type name of the variable type ("System.String", etc) so that reflection could be used to bind the database values to an instantiated Config object.
