A nice summer off.

   Well, it has been a wonderful summer. After looking at what lies ahead and the work that needs to be done, I had decided to take a well deserved summer off. Two years of full-time school and work left a lot of work around the house that needed to be done. Let's not forget rest, lot of rest! It was also a good time to stand back and assess what I had done during school and what I would like to do next.

   One of the first things to make my list was an update to the website here from a web-forms site to a MVC site. So in my free time I have been studying ASP.Net MVC. I ran through the old Music Store Tutorial on, as well as several other tutorials, and am now currently reading through Professional MVC 5 published by Wrox, and is such an excellent book. After that a look into Windows 10 apps has caught my interest after taking the time to run through the simple "hello world" app tutorial. The cross-platform nature of Windows 10 peaks my curiosity.

   Now that I have costumes done for the kids, stay tuned for the new website to come. Additionally I would like to create a mock inventory or employee program, and refactor the e-store that was done for my e-commerce class which was a lot of fun. Learning the tools of MVC will make the construction of these so nice and I am exited to build them!
