I just flew back from Barcelona where I gave three talks last week at Tech-Ed EMEA. Lots of excitement, and great feedback, on all of the new Ajax features being added to the ASP.NET framework. I've included the Power Points and demo code from my presentations below.
In my first Ajax talk, I focused on several newly released features of ASP.NET AJAX including Browser History, Script Combining, jQuery integration, and the ASP.NET MVC AJAX Helpers.
In my second Ajax talk, I discussed the new features of ASP.NET AJAX coming with ASP.NET 4.0 AJAX such as client templates and controls. These new features make it practical to build pure client-side AJAX applications with the ASP.NET framework.
Finally, I gave a talk on building high performance ASP.NET websites.
Thank you, once again, to everyone who came to my talks! The discussions after the talks were really great!
