Some New Requirments

Now that the The World of Art site is up and running, lets add some content from the artist database. Here is a list of requirements for the next iteration of development;

  • Add a page to the site called artist.
  • The artist page will render a list of artists names, and place of birth.
  • The list of artists will be rendered in a grid which can be sorted.
  • There should also be a detailed view of each artist, where visitors can page through information on each artist, one at a time.
  • Prior to rendering the artist page, an automatic request or query for data, should be made to the database server, so that the page is already filled with information when the user navigates to the artist page.

For now, it’s back to Visual Studio, to develop the artist page based on these new requirements. Come back soon to see the results.

First Iteration of the World of Art Web App

Today I published the first iteration of the World of Art web app. For now I simply used the default look & feel that comes with the Web App Template available in Visual Studio 2010.

The master page, which comes with the Web App Template, has some very simple tab based site navigation already built in. I created three pages which can be reached by clicking on their corresponding tab.

  • Home
  • About
  • Blog

The Blog tab will simply navigate the user to this blog site.

Deployment of the web app to WinHost is a very simple process.
