It is 7:30 on a Saturday morning and I am about to delve into coding. It's been a fair while since I have been able to say that!
In my last post, I said that I would be creating some of the tables in my database ready for the front end code. Well, the operation went well, and I now have many of the tables that I will need. Not all of them, but I am still more inclined to get some of the basic functionality done before I begin adding things all over the place.
I briefly toyed with the idea of creating my own tables for the security features of the site such as user logins and admin updates. Having thought about it for a few minutes I decided to stick to the Microsoft security features available in .Net. Using these features means that I have more time to concentrate on the bulk of the actual site without worrying about the things that are in the background. So my database is now fully equipped with the various aspnet_* tables as well as the tables that I had created.
The next step is to begin coding the actual site. I have decided to go down the MVC route to create the site, mostly because it is quick and simple. I don't use MVC that much in my day job, but have come to be quite fond of the concept from messing around with a few other projects that I have delved into.
Anyway, I must get started with the actual coding. Time to break out Visual Studio, and the Foo Fighters (awesome to listen to when coding!).
