I'm a Web Application Developer in the Asp.Net space. I code my applications in VB.Net but I do understand C#. My level of coding is about at the Intermediate level but sometimes when I'm working on certain projects and run into a problem I begin to doubt my ability, but I never give up. I also have a background in graphic design.
Question: How soon do I consider posting a question.
Answer: I will work on trying to solve the problem myself (pride) for an extended period of time before posting a question.
My belief as a forum participant: "Pay if forward"
Although I'm paying little to no money for answers/solutions to programming/development problems the knowledge is "worth it's weight in gold" and I look forward to answering someone's posted questions.
