I use the registry for UI settings and other things not related to app function specific settings.
VB6, WPFText Based File
Best way to release software using data because there is no need for the end user to be using any kind of database system. JSON may be the go to logic for this type of data. Unfortunately, most of my research is in custom logic.
VB6, PHP, WPFMS Access
If you need a portable database this is the best option out there. Not recommended for the web because it has a connection limit.
VB6, ASP 3.0MySQL
Supported by most Linux web hosts.
Very unstable, I stopped using this set up.
Supported by most Windows web hosts.
MVC 5XML / XSD
Great way to ensure transmitted data was received in entirety. I skip this logic server side for FTP and custom logic.
My experience lets me say that it's a great way to create small web server files for a glossary page to get data.
I have a tremendous amount of experience using this environment: A lot of printouts, and other things related to web programming.
Scheduling/Accounting, Floor MappingHTML Help Workshop
I'm not sure I will use this anymore because I think JSE will eventually replace it, if I even make a local help.
Basic listing with search.WPF
What a wonderful environment, whoever made this should be given a medal. It's a modern framework that is nearly ready for mainstream adoption, not quite though (January 2018).
VB (EXE / DLL)WiX Toolset
This is what I use to create Windows installations. It took me nearly two years to absorb the information before I created the software that churns the compilation.
My first server side adventure on my own, very complicated syntax. I used this with SHTML to create a few websites including a search engine.
Email form, Whois, SearchASP 3.0
I've written thousands of lines in Classic ASP, most of that being form checking logic.
PHP is a great language that runs on one of the most inexpensive platforms.
Journal, News readerPython
Python was a fresh experience for me because of the syntax. I used one the early versions of App Engine to learn Python with and it was an absolute joy.
Host search using script conditions for data.ASP.NET MVC 4 / 5
At the time this was Microsoft's most advanced and modern solution for creating a web application.
30 websites.Go For App Engine Standard Environment
This platform is very strict, but I'm guessing that's what partly makes it so fast.
Basic website using caching.
I'm at a point where I don't even use the document specification at 3Health, just plain old HTML. Example: <img src="z.jpg"> instead of <img src="z.jpg" alt="" /> (Is that for outdated hardware???)
XHTML 1.0, HTML5SCSS
The only SASS that I use is for variables. In reality it's a confusing way for me to say that I minify CSS. It's great for declarations though, you can know what's what in the header.
Worked all roles (owner/admin/contributor) in a WPF environment creating Epics and Features for adding and completing tasks. Used only by me, I just signed in and worked each role.
Decided to stop using it because I did not like the code bindings (backups). Everything else was great, and even made things easier/quicker with planning. I just wish this service removed the code management (hosting) part of it. I don't see it speeding up (possibly the opposite) file management within the everyday management/sharing of projects.
If I were asked my skill level, I would say I got to querying completed tasks. My favorite part of using VSTS was designing epics and features as an admin.
I no longer push to GitHub using VS Code and Visual Studio, I use GitHub Desktop instead because it's much more organized when I do it that way.
I manage all of my portfolio with GitHub using Issues and Release functions. A lot of my repositories are codeless.
