comment what are the most important coding standards in c#
For a student project, worrying about coding standards is procrastinating. Solve the real problems, don't get hung up on stuff that is ultimately meaningless to the success of the project.

comment Structuring Procedural vs OO code
@JoeP: C++ has a variety of other features besides just OO features, such as exceptions. With C, it's pretty straightforward to imagine what your resulting assembly code is going to look like, with C++ that is pretty much impossible.

The abundance of C programmers and projects in C disagree with your claims of "almost all"

Sure, you can't do proper real-time with .NET, but you can sure do "good enough" for many applications, including machine control systems.

@JörgWMittag: while this isn't a legal website, software licensing is on topic, and we are capable of thinking for ourselves.

comment Does Microsoft still have C++ container limitations when passing to DLLs?
Short answer because I'm on my phone, yes, you'll have problems, because of a variety of reasons boiling down to no standard for binary compatibility. Possible solutions are to expose a pure C interface, or use COM.

comment What is a good algorithm to teach time complexity?
@RandallCook: That is going to be tough to execute by hand, and is a better example to illustrate that Big O notation doesn't tell the whole story.

comment Front-end structure of large scale Django project
Building a website using a tool, then throwing away one of that tool's best features, based on speculation of completely unknown usage in the future, is usually unwise.

comment What happens to database design process when ORM tools are used?
For some projects with some ORMs, you can forget about the database and only think about the ORM and get away with it, and for other projects you can't. Just like when programming in 'high-level' languages, being mindful of the whole process top to bottom, from classes to bits and bytes, is what you need to do.
