After going to school to become a network administrator, Mike, fell in love with programming. He has been a midrange (IBM i, iSeries, AS/400) developer since 2000. He has since added ASP.NET to to his toolbox (around 2006) and now does dual duty writing/supporting green-screen applications and ASP.NET internet and intranet applications. He does a lot of integration between the IBM i and ASP.NET.

Besides his programming day job, he dabbles in PHP and many other areas of tech.

You can find him on his website, @MikeWills, Facebook, and Google+

comment How would I implement this application idea?
About 25 to start with and probably will grow as I add additional features. I know there isn't any database limitation. Really, I want to use NoSQL so I can learn what it can do.

It's more like what do I send to the server when I update a field? Does the entire form get sent, just the field?

That sounds interesting. I'll take a look into it. The main user will be me and a few of the group may use it as well.

comment Should the admin interface of a public-facing webapp be accessible externally?
From day 1 when we started eCommerce, we set the rule. "We do not store credit card numbers."

Customer data is billing contact (address, email, phone). That is all.

The only identifying information in that table is the Order Id and Transaction Id. No actual credit card information. We don't even store the last 4 digits of the CC number. We then log the customer name and contact info (address, email, phone) for reporting purposes to bring that information internal for our financial systems. We use First Data. What they return back in their web service is what we store. Saving us from looking up that information in their web portal and on our side to see what went wrong. Hopefully.

This would be basic for payment troubleshooting and then exporting the previous day's transactions in case of problems with the automated system.

Hmm... we'll have to research what we can and can't store then.
