I was very excited to see that Omar AL Zabir, co-founder & CTO Pageflakes has created a very cool AJAX based Web portal http://dropthings.com. And even more excited to see he has posted all the code in an open source way! Now you can build your own Ajax portal fun!
Dropthings is a open source Web 2.0 Ajax Portal that shows the power of several .NET Framework 3.5 technologies. It supports widget based modularized website, drag and drop personalization of content and an open API for widgets. It is the sample featured in the book, Building a Web 2.0 Portal with ASP.NET 3.5 and you can use it as a personal portal, a group website, a public portal or as a dashboard for an enterprise that aggregates services from different systems.
