comment Learning to be a good developer: what parts can you skip over?
@Rytek I didn't appreciate the second edition of Code Complete when I browsed through it, but that was a long time ago, and I don't remember why I didn't like it. Your millage may vary.

comment Web technologies on GUI apps
Interesting. It turns out one can find plenty of experiences posted on the Web if you look for the right keywords: "hybrid application". Some of the latest news say that MS will ditch .Net for Windows 9 and adopt a hybrid approach based on HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript.

comment What happened to Borland Delphi?
It all started when Borland changed its name to Inprise, and then back. Or perhaps before, when Philippe Kahn left the company. Any way, Borland was founded and lived strong as a company serving software developers, and at one point it decided to shift its attention to corporate mumbo-jumbo. That's when many, like me, felt betrayed, and dangerously trapped in a proprietary technology. Then came Java... I still use Delphi 7 on legacy work.

@Bob The fundamental corporate fad has been for decades that a new technology or methodology will allow non-programmers to write working programs. CASE, UML-to-code, and Enterprise Architecture Frameworks. It's recurrent: MDAs sit are their computers, make a process diagram, and create software.
