What the hell is C-Sharp?

Fellow coders;

I just get off the phone today with some clueless headhunter and after
listing for her (very proudly I might add) my OS and dev tools
platforms of choice;


I get a few moments of silence and she mentiones to me some new wizzy
bang dev languages including C-Sharp. Oh and you bet she asks me if I
an a DotNetter.No, I reply quizically as if to ask, why on earth would
I ever need that?

She goes on to say that the tools I am using are "older tools" and
that I should consider crash courses in these so called "up to date
languages". Oh this is precious.

God, I just about lost my breakfast all over my desk.

Before letting her go I made a futile effort to inform her that these
old moldy tools of mine are ALL under active development, are very
modern and are all over the net.

Dumbass headhunter!

ASP.NET uses a very interesting model. It blurs the distinction between
server-side and client-side code. For instance, you can attach a C#
method running on the server to the onchange event of a select box. When
the user changes the selection, the page automatically posts to the
server, preserving data on the form, and calls the handler. Conversely,
server-side code can do things that're usually regarded as client-side,
such as setting the innerHTML property of a tag.

In my own notes-to-self this feature is listed under the title "Why ASP.Net
is evil". There is going to be some really horrible stuff written because
of that. Ken's prediction for most heard quote:

"You say went to its knees when it went live with 20 users? That's funny,
it worked great on my machine during development."
