I have just returned from Microsoft PDC 2005, and I must say that it was marvelous. Being there was worth every miserable second on those flights :).
The hottest thing for me was the new AJAX framework for ASP.NET -- Atlas. Shanku Niyogi gave an overview session on Atlas that covered the potential uses of the framework. Nikhil Kothari continued with a session on building Atlas components with server and client side examples. Nikhil has posted an overview of the framework architecture on his blog. You can download the slides of Shanku's presentation here, and Nikhil's -- here.
I am using jsUnit in my projects -- it has allowed me to test for browser incompatibilities by running the same suite of tests on different browsers. jsUnit is open source, so I guess the right way to go would be to contribute a set of adapters or testing extensions that would help us in testing Atlas components. I will most definitely have to look into that once I get my hands on the Atlas betas.
