Entity Framework and My portfolio website

More exciting news from week 10 of our program. Hard to believe that we only have 2 weeks left of formalized lessons but, time flies when you’re having fun I guess.

Anywho, this week we have started using Entity Framework and it is an amazing tool. It makes using databases quicker and easier to use. Once you initialize a model you can grab that information and create a script(s) for SQL to both create and edit databases. We used this to build a Todo list application yesterday and it works great. I think when I have time that I’m going to take the application a little further and make it into an interactive shopping list. I may tie in API’s from different websites so that you can check the prices of products at different stores. I am having a lot of fun in .Net so far and it is coming to me a lot easier than JavaScript did. I’m not sure if that is because .Net is the second language that we are learning or of it just because it just clicks better.

Furthermore, as I promised last week I have gotten my portfolio website up and hosted at robbybourne.com. While it is bare bones right now It is something I will be adding a lot to over time. I may even end up rebuilding it in .Net as well but we will see. For the hosting, I am using GitHub pages and I bought the domain from google. I am really excited with how it turned out considering that 2 months ago I could barely code in HTML. Soon to come in the project section is my word guessing game built in Node.js and also the Todo-list that we just built in .Net.

That is all I have to say for this post. I appreciate the read and hope that you enjoy my portfolio site. Have a great day!
