Been paid for developing for a couple decades, in addition to the assembly, Basic, and DB III I learned for the fun of it. Most of my professional career has been spent developing server systems and web applications.

Some things I have come to believe are:

  • Simplicity is hard, but oh so necessary
  • The hardest problem is understanding
  • Users are great, they keep you humble

comment Dealing with profanity in source code
@TRiG, My answer to the OP's question was one of understanding the context and culture of the development team. Sounds like we are getting off on a tangent.

comment What are some arguments AGAINST using EntityFramework?
If you use the EF XML and let the EF generate your classes for you, that is your only option. Getting EF to work with POCO can be challenging particularly if you are on a private network with no direct access to the internet.

comment Balancing dependency injection with public API design
@MichaelDudley, did you read the OP's question. All "assumptions" were based on the OP's provided information. For a time, the "bastard injection" as you called it, was the favored dependency injection format--particularly for systems whose compositions don't change during runtime. Setters and getters are also another form of dependency injection. I simply used examples based on what the OP provided.

comment Will Java catch up with C#?
It's not a dig on Mono, but not all the .NET APIs are supported directly. While they are making headway, and have come quite a long ways, there are limitations--particularly in desktop applications. Not sure how close Mono has come or if it legally can come to implementing Winforms or WPF. However, for strictly server side work, I'm pretty sure it's compatible. Haven't looked into it recently.
