Oh MY!
I was going through VS2005, as all the .NET geeks would do, after work (or during the work!)... The feature which made me happy is the My namespace. The only glitch is that C# does not support this namespace, and we may end up wrapping this up if we are implementing a cross-language solution. The My namespace does reduce lot of coding time, reducing lot of not-so-fun activities. For example, how would we find out a network connection is available?

Can you teach me .NET?
He asked. And I said yes! With having immense experience as a visiting faculty in my TCS years, I knew (As Tommy Lee Jones says, “100 years back man KNEW that earth was flat!”) that it would be a piece of cake. I was wrong (again!). These friends of mine (2 others joined later) come from a very different background. Mainframes! So, the question was WHERE WOULD I START? I can go on for hours blabbering HTML, or talk OO concepts and dive into Design Patterns. Even though HTML and OO concepts ......

Are Best Practices only for those who code?

Are they? The best practices for .NET tells us not to use Hungarian Notation. The books that should apply this ethics and relay this to the world are showing reluctance, it seems.
