The Do-It-All Programmer

Business meeting

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to my first attempt at a blog. My intention is to share in my day-to-day experiences in as a Developer, DBA, and technician. I am sure I am not the only person IT that has to wear many hats. So to that end anyone who wants to share their experience, please feel free to do so. One thing I am not is a designer so you will have to excuse the poor layout of my blog, it will improve as I continue.

I might from time to time discuss:

  • Dot Net
  • SQL Server
  • Microsoft Access
  • Operating Systems
  • Eloquence (Am I the only one who uses this as a database?)
  • Mainframe development
  • ASP
  • C++
  • Life-hacking

Visual Basic Vs. C#

The Battle Continues…

First things first both are languages in their own right are wonderful. I have much more of slant toward VB. The only reason I have preference to VB is because I grew up with it, started in QBASIC and have kept up with it ever since. I have experience in both C++ and C#. Now with the Dot Net Framework, I cannot see any single advantage in one than the other. Now with the Dot Net Framework everything is balanced. The debatably good thing about Dot Net is that it adds a layer of abstraction from the OS allowing for greater flexibility.

I recently heard from Microsoft that Visual Basic is now the number one used language from Microsoft; and for good reason, it is very simplistic. It is a quick and dirty language. Very much geared for rapid development, VB now has most object oriented techniques available as well as some really cool functional programming features as well.freeimages.co.uk workplace images

C#…What can I say, it has a very structured approach. If you have used C++ before, you will feel like you just downed a case of Red Bull! All the control of C++ without the tedium. The tradeoff moving to C# from C++ is that you move from having control of system memory to lack thereof. C# now also supports some functional programming concepts as well.

I am looking for you to keep me honest, and I am hoping to provide some good content to you now and in the future.
