Event Overview


In October 2008 at the Microsoft Professional Developer Conference in Los Angeles, the ASP.NET 4.0 Roadmap was presented which provided a walk through the 4.0 landscape from ASP.NET and discussed the core ‘themes’ of ASP.NET 4.0 – Web Forms, Core Infrastructure, Model View Controller (MVC), Data and Dynamic Data and AJAX.  ASP.NET 4.0, in combination with the .NET Framework 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010 will deliver some excellent features that will help make your client side coding easier, maintainable and allow you to add some real flashiness to your web pages. The February Developer Dinner will focus on some of the new features of ASP.NET 4.0 as well as a few of the new enhancements, to provide you with an early preview of the exciting capabilities of the Microsoft Developer Platform.

What You Will Learn:

The evening’s presentation will be a running stream of demonstration focused on the following features and functionality that will be a part of the next release of ASP.NET

  • Web Forms  – You will see how to take control of your control IDs, display images using the new DynamicImage control, learn about better ViewState  management in GridView and ListView, and get more control over the CSS markup of ASP.NET server controls.
  • AJAX – We will explore the new ASP.NET AJAX client template and data binding framework, including declarative UI, controls, data binding in the browser, and integration with Data Services and server pages.
  • JQuery – Microsoft is integrating the open source JQuery library into both the ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC frameworks and providing full product support. Learn how you can take advantage of JQuery to build richly interactive client-side Ajax applications when developing either ASP.NET Web Forms or ASP.NET MVC applications. Also see how JQuery works in combination with ASP.NET AJAX to provide the best framework for building Ajax applications.

Who Should Come:

This is an opportunity to get ahead of the curve of some of the new developer productivity enhancements first hand.  If you are someone who builds, architects, or manages development teams using the Microsoft development platform, this presentation is for you.
