comment What is the difference between programming for microcontrollers and programming for embedded systems?
I just finished up a project for school where I had to program both on an embedded system (Raspberry Pi), and micro controllers (2 PIC16F767s), and this is an excellent answer. Microcontroller = no (or very limited) OS. You get to handle all the nitty gritty details. An embedded system, you might get an OS to isolate you from the hardware.

comment C# gadgets overloading the form (can't see the woods for the trees)
I've had to deal with a few apps designed this way, and the document outline window can at least help you find and select what you're looking for. Go to View-> Other Windows -> Document Outline, or press Ctrl+W, then U.

comment Woes of a Junior Developer - is it possible to not be cut out for programming?
The learning curve is steep enough that I'm pretty sure it goes inverted at some point.

comment How to calculate throughput if there is network traffic
Throughput can never be max(R1, R2, R3). The connection is only as fast as its slowest link. There's also a lot of variables involved, such as how the connections handle multiple requests. Is it on a first-come, first server? Round-Robbin?

comment What kind of math do I need to become a better developer and programmer?
What math do you already have? Algebra? Calculus? Differential Equations? Discrete Math? What kind of ideas do you have floating around?

comment C# coding standards” Use the const directive only on natural constants
@Nathan Wilfert That's exactly what the 2nd rule is suggesting. If a number is not a natural constant, but you don't want it to change during execution of the program, then use readonly.
