ASP.NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010

Are you ready for another version of ASP.NET and Visual Studio?  ASP.NET 4 provides some major additions to AJAX with greater client support in the way of templates and the DataView control for data binding.  It also remedies several issues that have existed since version 1.0, including control naming and controls that render more standard compliant HTML.  Dyanamic Data also has changes to make its features available to all ASP.NET web sites. This release also focuses on easing deployment issues with web packages and the ability to transform web.config files for deploying to production servers.

Nov 6th - Agile  Patterns/Frameworks

Leveraging Client Capabilities with jQuery in Visual Studio and ASP.NET

Microsoft has embraced the popular jQuery open source JavaScript library, which is already used by many major web sites.  jQuery provides a very productive enivornment for client side programming in JavaScript.  It takes advantage of existing knowledge of CSS selector syntax to offer a powerful and efficient alternative to the DOM.  The use of operation chaining and implicit iteration lead to a very compact and productive syntax.  The library is very lean at a mere 15K, yet provides a strong base and a great extensibility model which has led to a large number of plugin extensions to simplify web development.  The session will review how to use the library for very useful features such as watermarks, avoiding browser inconsistencies, and making AJAX calls to the server.  Several plug ins will be demonstrated which provide stunning client experiences with as little as 1 line of code!  We will also study how to extend the library with our own custom utility funcitons and plug ins.   Learn how Jquery and the Microsoft AJAX Library JavaScript libraries greatly simplify client side development, and which to use for particular scenarios.

ASP.NET Request Processing

Many sites today represent functionality that is considered "Web 2.0", but how do you take advantage of these from your ASP.NET web site?  Study existing .NET libraries and develop some custom interfaces taking advantage of things like LINQ to XML.  Integrate your site with Twitter, Digg, Flickr, You Tube, Live Services, and others.
