Hi all. I would really appreciate it if anyone would help me on my quest to learning as much about the software development field as possible. If anyone involved in software development could answer any or all of the questions I would greatly appreciate it. I also feel that these questions and answers could benefit many others as well including people interested in learning about software development and soon to be CS or CIS graduates like myself. Thanks.
