Exchange rates–start project – part 1

(This is the result of 1 hour per day auto-challenge as a full cycle developer)

Long time ago I have made a site about exchange currency rates for National Bank of Romania( and l, later, also Central Europeean Bank ) . It was started on ~ 2004  – found image at

Then was passed via MVC1 – and it looks like in

Now it is the moment to pass to .NET Core and Azure.

Here are some requirements:

  1. Must parse at specified times the exchange currencies from multiple banks
  2. Must show the exchange rates
  3. Must have a Web application, a Console one , a Mobile one
  4. Must be easy accessible to programmers – if they want to have the exchange rates ( rss, custom links)
  5. Must have a download link for all values
  6. Must have charts
  7. Must be easy to use – whatever that means


I will work at the applications 1 hour per day – and see what it is happening over the time.

And one hour passes...
