Increasingly, websites want to bring you up-to-the-minute details of what is happening on the site, or in related fields depending on what industry you’re in. Whilst this is a nice feature, it’s important to take a step back during development and understand how ‘live’ data can impact on the productivity and profitability of you site.
A lot of ‘off-the-shelf’ packages will take care of this for you, and your friend is scheduling tasks. This takes processing power away from having to do a task on-the-fly when you request something (and there might be a great deal of people requesting it!) – and means that the server is only under load at specific times, manageable by you – or your developer at least!

Through experience, my favourite language for the .NET Framework is probably F#. True, it doesn’t fit into every situation; I don’t fancy writing a website with it for example. But for scripts and utilities, there’s nothing better.
You can run things interactively using F# Interactive or you can compile something up and use it as a normal executable. It’s super-fast to prototype with, which is great when you’re just throwing ideas around the office like we often do at Branded3.
