Tonight I revamped my web site. I have not updated my web site in a long time although I had a task on my To Do List to improve the wording. I have updated the content to reflect my current skills and services. I removed a lot of crap and made it look more professional.
The page touting my ASP.NET expertise was way out of date and made it seem like I was still studying ASP.NET 2.0. I now know everything about ASP.NET 2.0. Of course, Microsoft has moved on to ASP.NET 3.5, ASP.NET MVC, Linq, and Silverlight 3.0. So I’m still behind on Microsoft technology.
I added a page about my PHP web development skills because I’ve been doing a lot of PHP programming. I learned a lot of PHP while working on the Vloggerheads Ning site and I’ve been doing stuff with Elgg.
I also restored some material about Storefront 6.0. Tonight I learned LaGarde filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last year and Storefront has been acquired by Dydacomp. Businesses are really screwed if they are still using Storefront 6.0 but I’m still willing to support Storefront 6.0 because it always made me money and I have a lot of time invested in the necessary expertise to customize that old ASP.NET 1.1 web application. I think there may be a SQL Injection vulnerability for Storefront 6.0 which probably exists on many of the old sites I worked on.
I also made it easier to find my AJAX demonstrations and ASP.NET sample web pages through the Flash navigation. I have a lot of working code on my site which really demonstrates how good I’ve become as a web developer. I still have an unused MySQL database that I’m being charged for so I ought to use that for something. Elgg won’t run on an IIS web server so I may install OsCommerce, Joomla, or a CakePHP demo.
