I gave a
presentation about developing ASP.NET AJAX components. I have been playing with
the new framework for quite some time and I wanted to share my experience in
creating client-side controls and behaviors as well as using them on the server
via script controls and extenders. My opinion is that both ASP.NET AJAX
controls and behaviors are a good addition to a web developer’s bag of tricks
and having them at your disposal can significantly decrease the time to ship a
complex web app. I am posting my slides and demos tomorrow, right after I dig
my USB thumb drive out of my suitcase (talk about late packing and unpacking).
WebDD was one of my first presentation engagements, and I still can’t just be
myself before many people. As some people noticed, I
was quite nervous about standing in a crowded room, but I hope I managed to
show some cool stuff that aroused some interest in ASP.NET AJAX-style
a short presentation, and I think I should be splitting it in two: maybe script
controls vs. behaviors/extenders. Having more examples and covering some of the
trickiest parts in greater detail should definitely make the matter accessible
to a broader public.
conclusion I would really like to thank Dave and Phil for a great event. Adding Zi’s geek dinner made that
Saturday unforgettable. I am really looking forward to meeting you all, folks,
Almost forgot about the photos! Check out Dave’s
