"Atlas" is a technology preview that makes it easy for developers to add rich,
asynchronous functionality on the client for ASP.NET apps. In our February
webcast, ASP.NET PM Architect, Jonathan
Hawkins highlights the January Atlas Preview, and shows some
cool demos. He may also offer a few hints about what's to come at the Mix '06
conference in March!
Studio 2005 introduced changes in the development environment to simplify the
management of web projects. The ASP.NET team received feedback from MVPs and
users during the ASPVisual Studio 2005 beta, saying that while some changes were
an improvement, some development scenarios were broken by the new model. In
response, we developed the Web Deployment Projects add-in, which is available as
a download on www.asp.net.
Web Deployment Projects provide additional functionality for building and
deploying Web site applications that you create in ASP.NET 2.0 and Visual Studio
2005. This add-in includes a new tool that enables you to merge the assemblies
created during ASP.NET 2.0 precompilation, and it provides a comprehensive UI
within Visual Studio 2005 for managing build configurations, merging, and
pre-build and post-build task using MSBuild.
Bradley Bartz, a
Developer Lead and Richard Ersek, a Lead Program Manager with the ASP.NET team
will present and answer your questions.
Webcast - ASP.NET 2.0
Table Profile Provider Samples
This is a webcast with Stefan Schackow and
Hao Kung from the ASP.NET team on
ASP.NET 2.0 Table Profile Provider Samples.The default
SqlProfileProvider that ships with ASP.NET 2.0 "blobicizes" Profile data using
string, XML or binary serialization prior to storing information in SQL Server.
A frequent request from developers is the ability to store Profile data "in the
clear" in the database so that the data is available for querying and use in
stored procedures. Hao and Stefan have developed two samples to address these
issues and will walk through examples of using them in the
