I am an ASP.NET developer with over five years experience using both Web Forms and the MVC framework for Web Development coding in C#.
Microsoft SQL Server
Proficient level of knowledge around Microsoft SQL Server including SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008
My preferred persistence framework is Microsoft's Entity Framework 6.
I like to generate my database from Code First classes with Migrations and I use the Fluent API to handle mappings.
I use Twitter Bootstrap to create user interfaces that work well across multiple browsers and on mobile devices. The UI for this website is a customised version of Twitter Bootstrap
Test Driven Development
Having had the pain of trying to maintain poorly structured legacy projects with little or no test coverage, I am now beginning to adopt test driven development wherever possible.
TDD takes to make you think more about the code you're writing and goes hand in hand with the SOLID principles of software development. It's something I'm trying to incorporate into my work whenever I can and a field I find very interesting.
Although most of my experience has been with SQL persistence stores, I am now using MongoDB for a major project.
We use Rabbit MQ to handle time consuming actions that we don't want to block the web thread. This helps make our application much more scalable
