Bye-bye tomwayson.net

In my former professional life, I used to do a lot of .Net development, mostly ASP.Net development focussed on whatever alternative to WebForms was available at that time – e.g. ASP.Net MVP (remember that?), ASP.Net MVC, ASP.Net Web Pages.

These days, however, I’m primarily a JavaScript developer and it’s been years since I’ve written any .Net code. At Esri I get to focus on front-end web development, and if I’m developing on the server it’s in Node.js. To quote David Spriggs as he was musing about Node and GitHub, “we’re lucky to be alive at this point in history.”

So, I’ve finally decided to shut down my windows hosting account. As a consequence, tomwayson.net, my old showcase of .Net projects that I had worked on, is gone. I’ve redirected that domain to this page, but you probably already know that don’t you?

Below are links about some of the more interesting projects that were on that site.

  • City of Pasadena Interactive Map Enhancements The enhancements that I’ve been making to the interactive map on The City of Pasadena’s web site went live yesterday! About the Project The Google Maps based interactive map was originally developed (by another consulting firm) to help residents identify what neighborhood and city council districts they lived in.  A user entered an address, and the page ...
  • CairnBuilder CairnBUILDER is was an interactive mapping application that enables users to draw trails and markers over a topographic map service. CairnBUILDER is was a collaboration between Brian Sims and I and our entry into the ESRI 2010 Mashup Contest. CairnBUILDER uses used the ESRI ArcGIS Online JavaScript API to integrate user generated data (trails and way points, or cairns) with data from ...
  • myjoglog.net – Iteration 3: MVC Membership Provider-based Access Control In my previous post in this series, I determined that I had to start looking into how MVC handles access control before moving forward. I came up with a list of functional specifications that I needed to write proof of concept code right away to learn how ASP.Net MVC helps (or hinders) me in implementing ...
  • myjoglog.net – Iteration 2: User Stories Creating User Stories Now that I’ve got a feel for how MVC handles the mechanics of a data-driven application, I’ve got to take a step back and think about how users are going to use the application. For a start, here’s what I came up with: The site will allow anyone (both anonymous and logged in users) ...
  • myjoglog.net – Iteration 1: Completing the Workout Life Cycle So, if you read my first post in this series, you know I’m creating a MVC web application to log and share workouts. Picking up where I left off, I’ve got to complete the life cycle of a workout (insert, select, update, and delete). Completing the Life Cycle of a Workout In the first post we covered ...
  • My First ASP.Net MVC Application – http://myjoglog.net I’ve been very excited about ASP.Net MVC ever since I started hearing about its emergence in various blogs and podcasts. MVC basically addresses all of the issues I have with developing ASP.Net web sites (viewstate, postbacks, testing, etc), and I’ve eagerly awaiting a release its release. Well, now that ASP.Net MVC is in it’s first ...
