The Journey of Edi.Wang
When I was in junior middle school, I was so interested in computer technologies. I studied ASP programming by myself and built my first personal website: HackerInn. This site provides cyber security information and showcase my works.
After I entered high school, due to busy school study, I don't have enough time to continue working on my site. As a result, HackerInn was faded out of the Internet.
After college entrance examination, I planned to build a brand new personal website for demostrating my works.
Use Windows Aero style as visual design, make the website looks gorgeous.
Use XHTML + CSS as a replacement for table layout, targeting latest browser standards.
Use ASP.NET + C# as framework and language of development. Improve significantly on both functionality and security.
