Websites over lunch at Trinity today (Event Followup)

[Post-Event Update: Event followup links below.]

Visual Web Developer Together with Darrell McCrone, I'm going to be presenting at Trinity College Dublin today on Visual Web Developer.  We'll start from scratch, build a site, learn about the starter kits, and by the end of the presentation I'll be to showing how to use the new Atlas framework to build cool AJAX-enabled sites.  You won't see any Javascript, but you'll see it being leveraged under the hood to create some very impressive client-side techniques.

All are welcome - students, faculty and otherwise!  No ASP.NET experience necessary.

I have copies of a very nice book on building sites with Visual Web Developer to give out to attendees.  Great chance to learn more about ASP.NET, ask your questions, and maybe even get started making your entry for our Web Developer Competition.

One final note: all the tools we'll be working with today are available freely, and I'll show you where to get them yourself.


Update: Event Followup

I tried to cover too much in the hour.  I'm really sorry about that.  How do I know for sure?  This unwanted, unloved typo, which wreaked havoc on my Atlas demo:MUPPETRY!!!

Between the quotation marks you can hear the IDE mocking me: Where is your Autocomplete now, Rob?!

But hopefully, warts and all, the presentation offered you a big-picture view of how you can use Visual Web Developer to rapidly develop sites using ASP.NET.  Don't hesitate to write me if you have any questions, and I hope that some of you will enter the Web Developer Competition!
