Great streaming webcasts on Atlas, Web Deployment Projects and the Table Profile Provider samples

[UPDATE: actually linked the titles this time :)]

Definitely worth checking out this video content!  Enjoy!

ASP.NET “Atlas”
Technology Preview

“Atlas” is a technology preview that makes it easy for developers to add rich,
asynchronous functionality on the client for ASP.NET apps. In our February
webcast, ASP.NET PM Architect, Jonathan
highlights the January Atlas Preview, and shows some
cool demos. He may also offer a few hints about what’s to come at the Mix ’06
conference in March!

Web Deployment

Studio 2005 introduced changes in the development environment to simplify the
management of web projects.  The ASP.NET team received feedback from MVPs and
users during the ASPVisual Studio 2005 beta, saying that while some changes were

Web Deployment Projects provide additional functionality for building and
deploying Web site applications that you create in ASP.NET 2.0 and Visual Studio

Bradley Bartz, a
Developer Lead and Richard Ersek, a Lead Program Manager with the ASP.NET team
will present and answer your questions.

issues and will walk through examples of using them in the

    Is it possible to get the source code of this two samples. Our problem is that we do not know how to start this profile with Create user Wiaxrd. In short we do not know how to mix this with aspnetdb.
