comment What metrics should be used to measure memory consumption of a program for performance test?
Externally. I am supposed to run the program and collect its memory footprint by writing a testing program. Yes I notice I can get private bytes, but there are also Working set, page file, peak working set, and a bunch of other options related to memory usage. What are the difference and whihc one is appropriate?

comment Is C# more superior than Java as a programming language, objectively speaking?
@CodeWorks I was talking about simplicity to perform tasks. I'm not even asking for whether overall it's more simple to do things in Java or C#. I was asking if there is any task that is systematically simpler/cleaner to do in Java than C#

Why not? The purpose here is to just compare the programming languages, not to decide which one to use in a project.

@JoachimSauer You are right the question is strictly about the language (and strictly factual, not argumentative). I am trying to make that clear in the question, and you are very welcome to edit..

I am not looking for arguments about which platform is better, but more about examples of codes that is easier/shorter/less complex in Java as compared to C#

comment How to decide whether to implement an operation as Entity operation vs Service operation in Domain Driven Design?
I realize maybe it's hard to answer without any specific example, maybe you can propose some example, and I'll also think of some concrete situation to illustrate

comment How to decide whether to implement an operation as Entity operation vs Service operation in Domain Driven Design?
Indeed I am asking about a generic rule of thumb. I know that there is no magical rule that works 100%, but I want to know how to "intuit" as easily as you apparently do and acquire that intuition, maybe there is a good rule of thumb? I am not making any concrete decision right now

maybe for a seasoned programmer, it's intuitive, but for me it's often not. For example, without a more specific rule I don't know which one is more natural: myData.Transform(); or myTransformer.Transform(data);

comment “Don't do programming after a few years of starting career”. Is this a fair advice?
-1 The question is whether it is a good decision to stay being a programmer, not whether old programmers exist.
