ASP.NET Web Developer

I do most of my web development work in ASP.NET. I've mastered ASP.NET 1.1 and ASP.NET 2.0. I've read many books on ASP.NET 2.0 and use most of its features. Unfortunately, ASP.NET has become a bloated monstrosity of web application architecture with multiple ways of creating a project. I have been unable to keep up with all the changes but I have done some work with Bootstrap, MVC, the Razor View Engine, and Web API. I currently use Visual Studio 2017. Now that GitHub offers free private repositories I also tend to use Git in Visual Studio 2017. I used to use SubSonic but now I use Entity Framework for object-relational mapping.

There are a few demonstration ASP.NET pages on this site that use the YouTube API. These pages demonstrate how ASP.NET can make web requests and process the XML that is returned. See my YouTube Favorites Backup page for an example.

SQL Server

Most of my ASP.NET projects have used SQL Server for the database back end but it is possible to use MySQL to save money and I am familiar with how to use MySQL with ASP.NET. For example, the web hosting company for this web site only provides a MySQL database so I write my ASP.NET pages to access MySQL.
