I am building a server-side rendered web app to help people find information about the land they
own in King County. This app queries data from the county's on-premise databases and leverages hosted
services to tell you everything we can about a parcel number. You can play with the demo here.
This web app is a direct reimplementation of a legacy ASP.NET Webforms project
written in Visual Basic .NET
and running on .NET Framework 4.5. My replacement is ASP.NET Core Razor Pages project written in C#
running on .NET 7. You can read about the performance and maintain ability advantages of this solution here.
I like camping. Often I'll go out to the Olympics and stay at sites like Lake Cushman, Deer Park, and the
coastline around Lake Ozette. I'm also enjoying ski season this winter. ⛷️
I also know a bit about photography. You can see my work on
Flikr. Right now I'm shooting with a Sony RX1R MKII. 📸
As of September 2022 I am the author of the top text result on Google for "How
to install RAM". Although I don't
write product reviews anymore, I still have a deep interest in computer hardware. 🧑💻
