I am Proficient Coldfusion programmer, but I also worked in
PHP for 4 years, and ASP classic. Coldfusion
is my preferred language.
My company, who has most of their existing programs coded in
ASP classic, has decided to transition to DOT.NET. I was all for until I started to learn .NET,
and then try to build something in .NET.
It is a difficult world for a developer with a
non-traditional background to adapt to the .NET world. It really makes you think about developing
differently. You really have to put
effort into planning, and more planning.
I tried to change things up the old way, making changes to
pages, or removing and rebuilding a master page and the whole application caves
I find myself rebuilding something 50 times in a new
solution just to get it to work.
So then I am thinking cost.
We have to find a guy that knows .NET to train us and get us moving and
help us crank out an application or two.
The whole time I am spinning in my brain as I am thinking of
the cost. Cost in time, cost for a
proficient developer, which can easily breach $100 grand.
And then I see your post.
So there it is.
My two cents.
