I hate to throw rain on your perceptions but writing code for the least experienced in your team is what you are supposed to be doing.

It is one of the first axioms that maturing developers should be picking up.

The idea that you want to write code your own way using whatever complexities you deem fit only drives the cost of maintaining your applications up.

If everyone in your team is familiar with LINQ for example, than you should be free to use it. If they aren't than you should be using what they do know in its place unless these team members are provided the time to learn how to use such technologiess efficiently.

In addition, code is supposed to be as simplistic as possible so anyone can easily absorb it when it is necessary for new people to pick up on your work.

Most of the so called latest and cool technologies are just fluff or junk technologies that do the same thing we have been doing for years with older, more mature technologies, yet far more complex since the younger professionals seem to be masochistic in their outlooks on what makes up good coding techniques.

Like with Linux, harder and more complex is seemingly better than simple and intuitive... Confused | :confused:
