comment Class design - should methods call other methods?
@Roy The simple answer is to do what works for you. If the time you'd have to take to revise it isn't worth it for a temporary script then don't do it. YAGNI.

comment Why is the use of JavaScript in HREF attributes discouraged?
@raptortech97 Realistically very little outside of corporate sites still using IE6, though the popularity of plugins like NoScript is growing.

@MichaelPlautz Wouldn't <a href="">click here</a> accomplish the same thing? Do you want to reload from the server or just refresh?

comment How Best Can I Use Git When My Employer Uses VSS?
Convince management to upgrade to TFS. I don't know if the migration tools Microsoft provides can go directly from VSS to the TFS (2013+) implementation of Git, but they have fantastic tools to move from VSS to TFVC, which is still miles ahead of VSS.

comment How much pressure should programmers be under?
@JDIsaacks Have you ever dealt with operations people? There's a culture, at least in my org, where everything needs to be done yesterday and that things get done faster by screaming louder or escalating to your boss (or boss' boss).

comment SQL Dev and Prod Environments
I'm curious to know why you need Production data constantly refreshed to a DEV database on such a tight interval in the first place. Could you tell us more about your situation?

comment Is vanilla JS still considered a library?
@delnan Phrasing it that way could imply that it is a "joke" of a framework, in the sense that it's so terrible that it's not worth using. What's actually happening, of course, is that Vanilla JS is actually just native Javascript being promoted as a framework, perhaps as a flippant critique of the wide array of Javascript frameworks.

comment Effective Repository in C# - Where to put methods?
@MetaFight Based on my actual situation, the concept of a "Ticket" is an abstraction. The actual problem domain has several ticket types (Incident, Problem, Change, Request). Might it make more sense to create a TicketRepository that provides access for all four types of tickets?
