Tomorrow, Thursday January 4th, is the January devCouncil in NJ. This month's topic is web development. We'll spend the first half discussing the new features in ASP.NET 2.0, then we'll cover the new Microsoft AJAX Library and how you can use it with ASP.NET to build rich user experiences on the web.
The devCouncil will meet from 1-5pm at the Microsoft Iselin, NJ office. Please register here to attend.
Here's the line-up:
1:00 - 2:45 - Up first on the agenda will be ASP.NET 2.0. ASP.NET 2.0 is the latest edition of Microsoft's web development platform. Learn how the new features in ASP.NET will enable you to quickly build rich dynamic sites with very little code. We'll explore the new provider-based membership, role management, and profile services, along with a look at the new compilation model, themes, and master pages.
3:00 - 5:00 - Next, we'll move on to the new AJAX framework from Microsoft: ASP.NET AJAX. We'll explore how you can build rich user experiences on the web with AJAX. Client-centric or Server-centric development? No worries... ASP.NET AJAX can help you with both. Update panels, control extenders, and JSON serialization, we'll look at it all.
Normally the NJ MS Developers Group meets after the NJ devCouncil, however, this month they are taking off for the holidays.
