comment What are the reasons for rebuild and redeployment libraries?
@EngineerSpock usually a switch statement will perform different logic based on an input parameter. If the cases are built around implementation classes, and a new class is added but the switch statement isn't, what should be the expected behavior? It's a violation of OCP and also means it's tightly coupled to the implementing classes.

comment Why do large websites use different languages for the backend and frontend?
@back2dos If we wanted to use a single language throughout, then any forms-over-relational-database applications should use SQL throughout for a single language across the entire application, including the front end generation. Yes, some languages can be flexible enough to be used in any tier, but that doesn't mean they should be used in those tiers.

comment Is there a reason to prefer lambda syntax even if there is only one parameter?
Note that this is the release build of the code from a quick scratch program, so there may be room for further optimization. But this is the default output from Visual Studio.

comment Can you actually produce high quality code if you are sleep deprived?
You call insomnia an illness like it's a bad thing. I, for one, enjoy the extra time it gives me each day. Otherwise I'd never have time to read quality answers like this one :)
