comment How do I apply a computer science degree to web development?
@T.Webster - Linq is great and all, but it is no replacement for a solid understanding of what is going on under the hood. You might be taking for granted the knowledge you already have that lets you use these types of "power tools" effectively.

comment Does the use of debuggers have an effect on the efficiency of programmers?
I am not saying that the debugger should be used incessantly, however, it can be great for exploring some new code in detail. "Running code in your head" is great and all, but good luck doing that with messy legacy code written 20 years before you arrived. We all have to deal with ugly code every once in a while and I really cannot think of a better tool to tackle it.

comment Is Silverlight suitable for an enterprise class web-based product UI?
-1 This answer is not very informative. #1 is false on two counts. For one, Silverlight will definitely be supported in Windows 8. Secondly, Silverlight also works on Mac. #2 is desceptive. If your application is properly structured(MVVM, MVC, whatever) it will be a bit easier to change out tiers. Either way its going to be tough in the real world. #3 is not a reason...
