comment If you use MFC how did find it best to learn the concepts?
You can use C# and create WinForms apps that, when compared to MFC are far easier for most cases. The .NET framework is far more consistent and easier to follow IMHO. I can't really make the comparison to Java, as I have no experience. If I could choose between C# and WinForms or MFC, it would be C# hands down.

When I was young, we programmed in 1's and 0's! And sometimes we didn't have the 1's!!

comment What do you think are the biggest software development issues, in small to medium businesses?
I have 15+ years at my current (and only gig) and watching us grow from 5-6 to 12+ devs this answer is spot on. Can't up-vote it enough.

comment What are the technical contributions of the pornography industry?
@Jonescb, I've heard the opposite... major adult distributors chose blu-ray. including one with ties to a family company that rhymes with 'Bizney'.

comment Software Process Management
The only software we use is Test Track (again, not an advocate). We collect the requirements as 'stories' or 'epics' and add 'tasks' to those. Some may say it's too agile, and I won't disagree. In the past, we've been burned on software costs and have tried a minimalist approach for while.

@Clint, I'm sure you're correct. That's the name on the box.
