WEBCAST: What’s New for Web Developers in Visual Studio 2008 & the Microsoft ASP.NET Futures

You might want to entertain attending even if you’ve seen me present this one before.  I will be showing new Visual Studio 2008 beta 2 features like LinqDataSource, improved design time experience for ASP.NET AJAX extender controls, AJAX Web Part drag and drop, and anything else I find between now and then:).

This session will cover some of the great new features that will be coming soon with Visual Studio “Orcas” & the Microsoft ASP.NET Futures.  Learn how web development with .NET will continue to improve and evolve, and talk about some of the upcoming features and how best to use them.  We will be covering:

  • Targeting a specific version of the .NET Framework (2.0, 3.0, 3.5)
  • The new ASP.NET page designer (split view, CSS and improved layout support, nested master pages, etc.)
  • Better control of markup using the new ListView control
  • ASP.NET AJAX / JavaScript Intellisense & Debugging improvements
  • LINQ integration
  • New controls in the Microsoft ASP.NET Futures (Back button support, Silverlight controls, SearchDataSource control, Dynamic Data Controls, etc.)

    You haven’t missed the presentation.  The wecast is at 2:00pm EST (GMT-05:00) today.  I will publish the slides and demo code.  However, the slides don’t have much information in them because the webcast is 99% demos.
