Well, as I work here I feel more and more unappreciated for the knowledge that I posess. Just because I am a fan of technologies other than .NET I feel like the people here at SmoothFusion think I know less than they do. They especially hate to hear that .NET may not always be the answer to a programming problem and that there could be a better solution in other technology.
My question is how can they be so closed minded? Programming is a science of finding the right solution to a problem. That solution isn’t always the most obvious choice, sometimes you have to dig to find it. If .NET was the answer to everything then that would be what everyone would use but .NET isn’t the answer and that is why we have options when it comes to programming. Being so focused on a technology that doesn’t always make the system better can be detrimental in the long run by killing the thought and choice process.
