ASP.NET Resume Templator Project is Broken


I am just posting about this to see if anybody else is experiencing it. I am working my way through the ASP.NET Resume Templator and matters. No matter what I do none of my changes populate. I have no idea if Im doing the project correct or not. Is this how its supposed to work? Because if that is the case then it is very useless.

Cant get it to work either. UI refuses to update no matter what I do and there are no error messages nor feedback.

Is it possible to submit a bug to Code Academy. I want to pay for this service but at the same time this feels like quality and they are asking for premium dollar.

I personally feel like the ASP.NET course is a bit neglected.


Glad it’s not just me, this lesson is messed up.

Just to confirm, as of today it is still broken.

I encountered the same issue as well to having no update on the UI. I reported it as bug to Code Academy. Please report tgt :slight_smile: .

I agree entirely with @morgadob41
I am extraordinarily dissatisfied with the quality of the ASP.NET course on Codecademy. The material did not meet my expectations.

While I agree with others here that the lack of error messages on this project is frustrating, especially if you’re new to C#, the project itself does work if the code you’re using is correct. I had to do a lot of troubleshooting/bug hunting, but I was able find my issues in the end. However, if Codecademy could provide error messages or some other kind of feedback when saving changes, I believe that would help immensely.

Basically, I discovered that if my changes weren’t displaying after a “Save”, then I had a bug in the code that I’d added just prior to that which was causing something to break and prevent the changes from displaying.

I can put together a blog post to show the code that I used to get the project to work if others would find that beneficial. And if I’m allowed to post a link to an outside resource like that here in the forum, of course.


If you’re still looking for help with getting this project working, I believe that I can be of some assistance. Please let me know.

For future readers:

  • when the app in the minibrowser stops updating to reflect changes Saved in the code editor, it indicates that there is an error within the code.
  • errors in the code prevent the application from being rebuilt when Save is pressed, meaning that the last successful (error-free) build persists in the minibrowser until all errors are cleared.
  • to check for build errors, run dotnet build in the terminal. resolving all errors presented will allow the application to build successfully again
