comment We have a custom program that generates all the stored procs and classes for the Data Tier. Where will I put the generated classes?
you can if you wish and it seems a logical thing to do... very hard for me to comment as I don't know your system so can't really given much of an opinion on what are good and bad options. The only thing I'd have a play with entity framework and get it doing what you want as a exploratory exercise to see if it will work better for you or not.

for sure....the point I'm making is from a MVC point of view it doesn't make any difference ( even though some MVC frameworks might assumes a particular layout of resources ). There's no standard, and common approaches depend a bit on specific frameworks / language / enviroments.

comment Is this an example of 'over engineered' or a good practice?
the main idea in all these isn't abstraction its decoupling. An abstraction may be used to achieve that, but its not the goal.

comment How valuable for my career is working on an extremely primitive platform?
if you can, just play around with making your own language using lisp, sometimes its better just coming up with something then going "hey look, see what I've created..."

comment Functional testing and Acceptance testing leading to redundant code
context plays a big part in this, you could just do acceptance testing and drive your code from that. You could just do functional testing and drive your code from that. Neither is 'bad' but just not always appropriate. In general, if you are new to it all, do both. This will let you learn to do both efficiently and find the right balance of testing. You may find your developer driven testing becomes more focused on smaller chunks

comment Is Test Driven Development in Javascript helpful for front-end developers?
TDD for javascript is simple enough, TDD for the adhoc weird wiring using multiple frameworks is a PITA
