I'm mainly a C# developer, currently working on ASP.NET MVC web applications, but I'm also fluent in PHP.

Check out my blog: Johnny Code

Here are some of the technologies I've used:

  • Kentico - I'm a Kentico Certified Trainer, and avid developer.
  • ASP.NET MVC - Worked on a college essay web application.
  • Entity Framework -I've done multiple projects using EF and have come to like it.
  • LINQ - I'd say I'm getting pretty good with LINQ. I've also used LINQ to SQL on a couple projects.
  • CMS': Kentico, Sitecore, Sitefinty, Ektron, and a little Drupal and Joomla.
  • .NET controls: Telerik RAD controls
  • Web Services - ASMX, ASP.NET Web API, WCF
  • SQL - I've written more SQL than I'd like :P Mostly for SQL Server and MySQL, but I wrote a little for Oracle too.
  • HTML, CSS, JavaScript, XHTML, XML, XSD - I can work with HTML and CSS fairly well, but I have NO design talent! But I could probably reproduce a Photoshop mockup with markup, and can slice and dice images fairly well.
  • JavaScript - I was writing JavaScript before jQuery, but I never liked it :P Now JavaScript is fun again.

comment Best tools to build an auction website
I'm just saying that I think for this particular application, I would not use a CMS. The primary focus would be the auction listings and bidding system which need to perform as fast as they possibly can. Using a once size fits all CMS, even with plugins/modules, might just get in your way in the long run. I think a better solution would be to use a CMS for the public site, and put the actual auctions on a sub domain or sub path running outside the CMS. The core of the business is auctions and letting people bid. I would want complete control over that.
