comment VB.Net vs C# debate
That's circular reasoning. Although I felt the same way early in my career, I am increasingly understanding that consistency as a measure of code quality is just us OCDing on the details that don't truly matter. I get where you are coming from and would have argued your point exactly 15 years ago. I've just come to understand that it adds more effort than value to the final product.

comment VB.Net vs C# debate
It is only sloppy code because the compiler can't interpret it. If all compilers were case insensitive it wouldn't matter a lick. Our job is not to write code for print in a magazine, it is to write code that does a job. "Sloppy" case doesn't inhibit that one bit.

comment What are some FizzBuzz-type questions for web or SQL developers?
Why do you need me to look at it. You can test it yourself and see if you get the right answer.

comment What are the warning signs of impending doom to watch out for on a project?
It's funny how every schedule has testing as the last step as if testing won't find any bugs. If not, why bother with the testing?

Requirements are just a formal way of winning the argument with the user when you deliver exactly what they asked for, but not what they needed. A situation where everyone loses.
