WhatIWantMost: Errata II

Kyle Beyer appears to be working on an AJAX login control. If successful, and I'm sure he will be, it will be something that should be incorporated into WhatIWantMost.com. Dave Burke is taking the .netTiers torch and running with it. In this post...


WhatIWantMost: Let's start coding, monkey!

I've been getting cards and letters from people I don't even know asking, "Hey, how about a status update on WIWM!". Being beholden (a recent addition to my vocab thanks to the illustrious Clark Marx) to you, my dear audience, I cannot refuse...


WhatIWantMost: Starting off with .netTiers

In my last post I took a first pass at designing the database for WhatIWantMost.com. The next step is to use CodeSmith and .netTiers to generate... well, um... the .NET Tiers. Using .netTiers in as easy as they say it is on the site. Really, all...


WhatIWantMost: Database I

In my last post in the WhatIWantMost series I further defined the basic entities for the project by adding attributes I think they need. The next step is to make a first pass at designing/implementing a database to support those entities. I...

WhatIWantMost: User Stories

To help define some of the functionality I am looking to bake into WhatIWantMost.com I listed out a few user stories. Because the stories can be a little complicated (userA sends email to userB to ask if userC...) I created a couple of personas....


WhatIWantMost.com - Introduction, part deux

In my previous post I laid out the plan and goals for my WhatIWantMost.com project. I forgot to mention a couple of things, though. Because I am a great big huge fan of automated builds, continuous integration, CC.NET, ... (author goes on and on...


Creating the WhatIWantMost web site from scratch: Introduction

Like many developers, I have a few domain names stashed away for rainy days. WhatIWantMost.com is one of those domains. I registered it a while back after doing some brainstorming with a colleague about building a holiday gift...
