Update: The speaker for this meeting has changed. It's now an ASP.NET 2.0 Walk Through!

The User Interface Process Application Block provides a simple yet extensible framework for developing user interface processes. It is designed to abstract the control flow and state management out of the user interface layer into a user interface process layer. This enables you to write generic code for the control flow and state management of different types of applications (for example, Web applications and Windows-based applications) and helps you write applications that manage users' tasks in complex scenarios (for example, suspending and resuming stateful tasks). This leads to simpler development and maintenance of complex applications.

CMAP has a meeting on April 6th where Ray Barley of RDA will walk through the design of the UIP block and some code samples showing how to use the block in an ASP.NET web application.

Ray is a senior consultant at RDA headquartered in Timonium, Md. Ray has many years of experience in IT, and is certified out the wazoo. He also runs a great SQL Server User Group that meets near BWI.

CMAP meets at 6:30 PM at Impact Innovations in Columbia, MD. I'll be bringing some cool MS Press books as door prizes.
