The Joy of New Projects

31 Oct 2009

I've been working on a project for a long time and it's gone through many, many iterations and even one full rewrite. Normally, I would never approach a project like this, but there is no client on the other side. This is just a project that I'm doing for fun and for learning. If it ever goes live, it's for a domain name that I bought over a year ago. The best part of this is that I can delete code and pull in new frameworks as I please. I'm hosting it on Github (so as to learn Git more), using ASP.NET MVC (which I know and love), taking advantage of the HTML control I'm given with the SparkViewEngine (because I like looking at pretty view files) and pulling in AutoMapper (Jimmy rocks!) and eventually NHibernate (later, because I want my domain to rule, not the database). There's much more I'm using and learning in this project, those are just the first ones that come to mind.
