Three Microsoft Technologies
Microsoft Launched Following Three Web Technologies:
1. Microsoft Web Form Technology
2. Microsoft Web Page Technology
3. Model, View and Controller (MVC) Technology
Here goes the story how I got acquainted with these technologies.
There is a Technical Institute near our house. My son had been doing numerous short courses from them. I had a grievance against the administration of the Institute.They allow admission in any course you like without determining the orientation of a candidate.When I conveyed this to an instructor, he did not admit this. However I was prepared to get admission in the web development short course.
But they were running Microsoft Form Technology under the title of “Advanced Course”. I had been advising my son to become an Expert Web Designer. When He could not have any progress I came to the Forefront. I had admission in this very course. After this things went apace.
MY INVOLVEMENT STARTED
I went to Urdu Bazaar and bought Following Books:
1. Learning Visual Basic 2008 with.Net Framework 3.5
This book taught to design software with Form Technology. I used this for making a headway in Form Technology as also had taken admission in the Advanced Course.
2. Step by Step Learning Visual Basic. This books contains chapters for making Website by employing Microsoft Form Technology. I tried my hand on it but in vain.
3. Microsoft Technologies (Not exact name because the book has now be discarded); This book contained introduction to all the Microsoft Technologies. It had explanations, both in Visual Basic and C #. It had also a recommendation in favor of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and against Form Technology that it was now outdated as was stated in the Book. Having been disillusioned of Form Technology.After this, I lost interest In the Advanced Course I had joined.

DIFFERENT STAGES OF MY DOUBLE MINDEDNESS
Actually my natural orientation was for designing websites. Quite contrary to my pre-determined orientation for a Web Developer or A Blog Owner to spell the things precisely. They are much chances of making choices between two or more options as explained below:
1. VISUAL BASIC OR C SHARP
Which computer language I should learn i.e. Visual Basic or C Sharp. They answered what you like. But on googling for the fat I came to know that only 30 per cent are practicing the former and 70% are in favor of the Latter.
2. FORM TECHNOLOGY OR WINDOWS PRESENTATION FOUNDATION (WPF)
The So-called Advanced Course that had joined was meant to teach how to develop software with the help of Form Technology. On discovering about Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) I became double-minded whether I should opt for WPF or not. The institute did not accommodate an alternative choice.
3. MVC OR FORM OR PAGE TECHNOLOGIES
In the book mentioned above, the writer recommended MVC very much as it were to be only most successful technology. I wanted to buy the book. I went from pillar to post to search for the book in vain. I even search the topic as included in some books. But no hearty answer was available. At long last, I requested my daughter to bring the following two books fro me:
1. Professional Asp.Net MVC3 Book Jointly authored by Jon Galloway,Phil Haack and K. Scott Allen Published by Wrox
2. Professional Asp.Net MVC3 Framework jointly authored by Adam Freeman and Steven Sanderson and Published by Apress
She brought the first one when she came. Surprisingly enough for me, the second was also brought by my son-in-law, when he came latter.
THE CHARISMA OF MICROSOFT AND BILL GATE
Most of the old guys like me were still under the Spell of Microsoft and Bill Gate. Visual Studio was not the least enchanting for me. I thought an association with Computer Technology is impossible without Windows and Visual Studio from Microsoft. But I discovered that the things had turned the other way.
They say that one can learn 11 lessons from Bill that one can learn from school.
DISCOVERING WEB MATRIX
Now I feel that using Windows and then using Microsoft, coming by Web Matrix is not a wonder. Installing it through Web Platform is pleasure. You can install a great variety of Applications through this Platform.
HOW I JOINED ORCHARD CMS
I had gone through quite a number of Microsoft Applications till I discovered Orchard CMS through Web Matrix. It was at 1.3 version then.There was also WordPress. That I guess may be at 2.3 at that time. Overcome by labyrinthine intricacies of Microsoft, I could not even check it.
WHY I SHIFTED FROM MICROSOFT TO WORDPRESS
I was newbie or rather a Total Newbie as represented myself in the Forums without any basic know-how. WordPress was more developed than Orchard. There were low-hanging fruits with wordpress i.e. Chances of very very easy customization. For example many times questioned about the meaning of Blog or Blog Post with no answer available. While in WordPress forums answers to these questions were available near at hand
