Q

Is there any advantage to developing the first and second tier in the same language?

I am building a new three-tier application and want to use .NET. Is there any advantage to developing the first and second tier in the same language -- i.e. VB.NET? One developer says the presentation tier should be in VB.NET and the logic layer in c# .NET. Help please.
Both languages are perfectly suitable for any layer. In fact, in .NET, all languages compile to a unique low-level language, the IL, so there's no difference at all. You should program with the language you feel more comfortable, but if you want to have a better future career, I'd say you should go C#, if you can choose.
