I'm a .NET developer that focuses on web technologies and UI.

I love working with JavaScript and I believe that this language will play a major role in future software development.

My weapons of choice are:

  • ASP.NET MVC (+ Web API)
  • jQuery / AngularJS
  • Umbraco CMS
  • Xamarin (iOS Development)

I also have a strong interest in:

  • UX design / Usability
  • Rock Climbing

I'm not afraid of css and I think twitter is overrated :-)

Specialties: Front-end, JavaScript, .NET

comment If you develop on multiple operating systems, is it better to have multiple computers + displays?
@dan's first comment: Yes, you will lose some raw power. But a fast PC at 80% performance is still faster than last year's fast PC. I understand your way of thinking, but with the current hardware, the small loss of computing power wont be missed unless you do any 3D rendering work or so. You should research the performance loss of the different virtualization apps.

@stijn: OP doesn't want a setup like that, he wants a dedicated seperate monitor/keyboard/mouse for every machine. I agree that your setup seems like a good compromise between power and easy of use. You should post it as an answer.

comment How do I develop in more languages with less IDEs
I don't have experience with Scala/Haskell. Again, I would google for stuff like "best scala ide" and see which one would fit your requirements best. PS: You can skip WebStorm and develop JS/CSS with visual studio. It's a decent IDE for web development and with the Resharper add-in you get auto-complete in JS and Css. (there are also free plug-ins available for this.)

comment Creating a webservice API - how much “credit” should I give the client/developer
does the ID need to be unique at your side or at his side? If its at your side, you should include a GetUniqueId function in your API.

comment I feel sleepy and tired when I encounter problems during a working day, is that normal?
Sounds like you're just being demotivated by the task ahead. I get the same when I'm trial-and-error'ing trough a problem.

comment What do I need to learn to become a better web programmer?
My advice: Read books. Which books? Google for "recommended programmer books" and read all of them. You're 15 years old, you have time.

comment What is the biggest trouble developers encounter when debugging?
Only thing that seems to work in that situation is extensive logging.

comment Naming a class that decides to retrieve things from cache or a service + architecture evaluation
update: the top rated answer on this link seems to answer it pretty well. stackoverflow.com/questions/1440096/… I guess it's very appropriate to name it CarRepository.

Péter, what do you think about naming CarService CarRepository? Or is a repository not meant to contain as much logic as I want to put in it?

ok, good point. Thanks a lot for your advice and suggestions. Was certainly helpful.

comment Naming a class that decides to retrieve things from cache or a service + architecture evaluation
I was unsure. Is there a way for me to migrate this to stackoverflow or can that only happen by vote?

comment Naming a class that decides to retrieve things from cache or a service + architecture evaluation
I like your naming suggestions, but perhaps CarCacheManager would be more appropriate since CarCache sounds like a class that actually holds the storage, instead of a class that provides an interface with the (memory)storage?

comment Naming a class that decides to retrieve things from cache or a service + architecture evaluation
yeah I'm developing this using Test Driven Design for the first time, which forced me to think more careful about this stuff. I understand your point and although I said I'd mainly use CarCacheManager for debugging, I think it's also important that people can quickly see how my application works without depending on an external service. The external service actually talks with Active Directory and MS Exchange Server so it would be nice if I can fake this stuff for demos and developing the GUI. What is your reason not to implement ICarService?

Point 1 can only be solved with hardware.

comment Is obtrusive JavaScript ever ok?
I've built some gracefully degrading pages in the past and found the html and javascript to be a lot less transparent, if you still want to offer the JS enabled visitors the best user experience. The pages were A LOT harder to build and I believe the guy maintaining the page will have quite some difficulties following your code. So there is certainly a long term maintainability cost to keep in mind when estimating the cost for making your site gracefully degrading. I found it to be very tempting to compromise on the JS enabled UX..
