.NET From a Markup Perspective

Write an AJAX-Enabled Web Page with Sorting, Paging, Inserting, Editing, Updating, Deleting… in 6 Minutes?!?

Ken Cox has a great web post, “Speed Test: A No-Code LINQ-Based ASP.NET 3.5 Page” that shows the power of using ASP.NET and LINQ to quickly build a web page with no code.  Yep… no code, and you get Sorting, Paging, Inserting, Editing, Updating, and Deleting… all with AJAX support… in about 6 minutes, including the time it takes to create the database!  See if you can beat my time of 6 minutes 22 seconds.
