Is that the sort of exciting story you were looking for? Big Grin

Yes, yes it is. Big Grin I like C# a lot better than Java. C# delegates are a much more natural way to implement async callbacks than Java's listener model. Visual Studio is still the best IDE out there. Java's Swing doesn't even come close to the widgets provided in WPF. And deployment of C# apps is painless while Java apps almost always are a pain in the ass to deploy. Welcome back programmer!

Oh man, I hope C# is easier than dealing with swing. Plus dealing with arrays in Java is strange- you have tree maps, hash maps, and what not. I got used to it, but it was hard to wrap my head around.

I've been using the Eclipse IDE and I like it- I like how customizable the UI itself is. MS applications tend to be more rigid. At least I've used Visual Studio before, so it won't be completely alien to me.

At least I have more OOP experience, so I'm hoping that I'll be more equipped to learn C#. I'm "self-taught", in that I haven't gone to school for any of this. Just basically piecing knowledge and experience together from tutorials, Google, and StackOverflow, etc. I haven't built anything big, so I feel awkward calling myself a programmer lol. But I have built several tools in Java, stored procedures and functions in PL/SQL, as well as lots of complex scripts in SQL, and lots and lots of batch files lol. Oh, and I LOVE regular expressions. I don't get why people hate them so much. What's up with that?

C# development is best done in Visual Studio - nothing else has all the bells and whistles.

Regular expressions are write-only. Angry

Not really, but creating one is far easier than figuring out an existing one.

That's a really good point. Even trying to figure out an old expression I wrote can be a headache.

Eclipse is good, it's just not as good as VS. Until Android Studio came out we coded our Android apps in Eclipse with Google's plugin. Now Android Studio internalizes Eclipse.

I love their power and know when to use them but I always have to go to regxlib.com and the documentation to write them.

That's what comments are for. Dodgy

It must be how gods chat when they are comparing notes about their biological creations.

"Seriously bro! You're still using RNA?"
"Sure, man, I don't like the extra complexity of DNA"

Comments in a regex pattern? That's crazy talk! Big Grin
