Tasks, Parallelism and why I'm learning to love Unit Testing

Published by Ben on June 7, 2017 at 11:13am

Hello there.

Since the last blog post there has been some nice progress on where I feel I am, with several Umbraco Projects close to completion I've been left to do more revising and more in-depth learning with C# in preparation for taking on the Microsoft C# Exam for a rematch.

Hello again.

It's been a pretty long time and things have moved along and like every gap in between blog posts I'm more experienced, I'm older and (allegedly) wiser.

There have been things to be disappointed about, namely exam results.  However since my last Blog Post I've had some time to work through a few projects and learn some key lessons.

Building Font Imager

Hi, my Name's Kerri. I'm the brains behind the app you've most likely just come from and if you haven't you can find it [here]. I've called it 'Font Imager' for lack of a better name (I'm a programmer, not a product designer), but before I discuss how I built it, let me introduce you to why I built it.

Hey there! 

It has been a couple of months since my inaugural entry to this blog and since then I have accomplished a couple of things.  I've approached Web APIs and MVC in, which I was able to use to program a wordsearch generator and I've most recently I was tasked with creating a web service to turn an icon webfont into a somewhat customisable package of png images.

Get it?

Anyway, I took part in my first demonstration to a client of a product, the product in this case being the close to finished version of the Umbraco website I mentioned in my last blog post.

Bugs, bugs everywhere.

As fun as 14 hours in the Hospital was, the recovery is always so much more entertaining.  Three weeks after some well-qualified men and women poked and prodded around my knee, I was back to 100%.  Which means I was in a good state to take my Database Fundamentals Exam.
