I don't find it bad if people try to advertise the good work they are doing. That is one way of getting recognised and getting in turn getting helped in the cause as well. In any case his initiatives are very much appreciable.
Hey CPians, I got in a trouble. Today my employer informed me that, they are closing the Windows Apps department in the company. I am having 2+ year of Windows (Phone) 8/8.1 apps development experience. I am allowed to switch to either web development i.e ASP.NET or mobile apps development i.e. Android/iOS. Existing developers will give training.
So I am now totally clueless what to choose. Mobile is future as we all know but I am a .NET guy, my grip on C# & LINQ would help me to easily learn ASP.NET. Moreover I am also looking for some government jobs related to IT (Which demands mostly a web dev guy). Modi has unveiled "Digital India", hence there would be job related to web more or less.
So I request you all to suggest me in the context of future job opportunity.
I suggest to go with web technology. Especially you have to target web development with ASP.NET MVC and not the WebForms.
Say if you are going with mobile development. Which one are you focusing, Android or iOS. I guess you can't do both.
Web has a great future though mobile is a big thing these days. All I would say is, when it comes to job opportunities, with web especially with your skill set you can easily get through most of the companies.

I do not have a smartphone >15k INR (because frankly I just don't need one). But I guess my answer still stands because I see people show their smartphones off deliberately as if they would increase their reputation. I see this behavior especially with the iThing users.
Exactly! I was wondering if there are some features missing in - say any android one or xiomi(recently heard the buzz) or Moto G (from prev thread), of course - which is offered by those costlier phones and is used by the owner.
I am not sure if you are mocking my reply, but in my opinion, as far as you are not counting on core GSM features (like 3G/4G etc), all other features (like storage size, processor, RAM, graphics etc) can be thought as extensions. Many people I see choose costlier Android phones only because they could play high-graphics games (apart from showing them off). But that's what the PCs are for.
One more time, this is strictly based on my views and observation. I currently use HTC Touch (yes, it's Windows Mobile 6.1) and HTC Wildfire S (Android 2.3), but since I use my phones ONLY for GSM services (along with some of the apps that I have written for personal use a long time ago), I am more than happy at the moment and have no intentions for buying any costlier phone in near future.
What do you do with your >15K android phone which entry level <10K android doesn't do?
It does everything but with difference.
1. Mine does if faster and your's doesn't (RAM & Processor)
2. Mine is premium and your's plastic
3. Mine has a better screen than your's (1080p vs other display)
4. Mine has Boom Sound (Stereo) and your's not
5. Mine is on 4G and your's not
6. I paid more and you didn't (I like to add this also a point )
7. I can add 128GB more to the memory using the SD Card Slot, where you can't
8. Mine can live more than your's (Battery Size)
