  1. I sincerely apologize; I did not mean to offend you with that comment. I was simply making a cheeky analogy and I did not mean for it to undermine anyone's knowledge or choice in language. The comment did not have the reaction I was expecting. Yes, C# is a powerful language - that's not what's up for debate. It has MANY good uses and there are tons of organizations who have elected to utilize that language as their tool. I simply don't think it's the best tool and it isn't one *I* would choose for that type of job. That does not invalidate the language itself, or the fact that it is a
  2. In my opinion, no - it's not a good tool to use for web development. And not just hating on Microsoft; I do like C# as a language but like with any of the Visual Studio products, the web components were an afterthought and not very well done. While the Visual Studio-based college courses may have included a section on web development, because it is a 'feature' of Visual Studio, I'm hard pressed to believe that any course dedicated solely to Web Development was based on C# - because it simply isn't the best tool for that particular job.
  3. I've used self-paced online training before, but nothing similar to an MOOC. It's not my style of learning, so it's a bit of a challenge for me to be able to complete these types of courses. I work best when I'm given a project/task and I need to figure out how to do it. The structured learn-this-code-then-do-this-project-using-the-code-you-just-learned never really made sense to me. But, for those who are inclined to learn that way? Yeah, I think it's awesome that these exist out there for free. Go sign up and learn something - show the organizations who host them that there are peop
  4. I think your best bet would be to use something like DynDNS and host the app on your PC. You'll need to adjust the router settings to forward whatever ports you need to your PC, but once you do that, you would have full control of whatever functionality you needed in a server. [EDIT: I should totally read all of the posts before replying.]
  5. You can use a screwdriver to drive a nail, too. Outside of tenacity, why would you want to when a better tool exists for the job?
  6. I can't even. I mean, really?! It would be a cold day in hell before I'd wear something like these. Aesthetics aside, why do we have to post everything we do to Facebook?
  7. I wouldn't plan on being able to quit your job and be a content provider right off the bat. It's rare that someone becomes a YouTube hit right away, but like the others have said - persistence is vital. Whether it be a blog, forum, channel, whatever, you have to promote your brand and give it time. You won't be making $500/mo or more right away, it takes time, development, promotion, and dedication.
  8. I don't know if I'd really call it 'fun', but more of a necessity. For the most part, I would really prefer not to have to deal with a database and SQL queries - especially for smaller projects. But, overall, it could be a lot worse. Fortunately, MySQL is very good about being well-organized and documented, much more so than other SQL Servers out there.
  9. I'm okay with most ads. I don't mind the flashy, I don't mind in-your-face. I don't mind ads that load with a page. But if you want to get under my skin, show me a delayed ad that pops up as I'm reading the article, as I scroll down, or as I click something, which forces me to click the ad. May the overlay ads burn with the fire of a thousand suns.
  10. I'm typically one of those DIYers - if I can't do something, I want to learn how before I pay someone else to do it. Sometimes that works out well, other times I spend more time and energy on it than it would have been to just outsource it. I suppose the point is if this is time-sensitive and needs to be done now and the right way, outsource it. If it's just a hobby and something you're interested in, roll up those sleeves and tinker around with it until you get it.
  11. Hello there! Welcome!! I know I'm taking a shot in the dark here, but are you a fan of the Falcons? What kind of coding are you interested in? There are so many different languages that you can learn, but each kind of has their own specific use - like a chest full of carpenter's tools. Some are common knowledge (HTML, JavaScript), some are interesting and cool (Ruby, Python), and some are how-do-you-even-use-that?! (PHP).
  12. Welcome! It's good to see you here! Working with Wordpress isn't anything to down play, my friend! There are companies and organizations that employ full-time employees exclusively for Wordpress. The product has certainly made a big name for itself, so it is definitely a productive expertise to have! And yes, I'd like to see your site, too - you can always get a better feel for someone by seeing something they've developed.
  13. Are you referring to Microsoft's Expression Web 4? That's what FrontPage has evolved in to. I actually think it's a pretty good product; I will use it when I need to throw a table or layout together quickly. It's not really designed for a developer, though. It is still, at it core, a WYSIWYG editor with the ability to peek at the code. If you're looking for a development IDE, you may want to try something like webStorm, brackets, or Aptana.
  14. I love Notepad++, but I'm also very fond of SublimeText. I love the live preview window! http://www.sublimetext.com/
