This demo-packed event will offer valuable insight into object-oriented programming fundamentals in Visual Basic® .NET, programming with MapPoint® Web Services, ASP.NET 1.1 Web applications, plus ASP.NET 2.0’s new Membership and Personalization features.

  • Object Oriented Programming Fundamentals in VB .NET: Learn the fundamentals of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) with the features of Visual Basic .NET. In this session, we’ll demonstrate how Visual Basic .NET provides support for all four of the key tenets behind the OOP paradigm – abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism - leading to code that is easier to test, maintain, extend and reuse.
  • Programming with MapPoint Web Services: See what location intelligence and graphics the MapPoint Web services can bring to your applications. Sometimes, all it takes is a map to quickly and most effectively communicate your message. With this hosted, programmable XML Web service, you won’t believe how easy it will be to add high-quality maps, driving directions, proximity searches, distance calculations, points of interest and other useful location-based information to your own Web sites and applications.
  • Optimizing ASP.NET 1.1 Web Applications: Explore how to build high-performance Web applications running on Windows ServerTM 2003. In this session, we’ll examine how to monitor and stress test Web applications - the two essential aspects of profiling performance. We’ll then demonstrate optimizations for key performance considerations like data access, server controls and caching.
  • Membership & Personalization: Discover the new Membership and Personalization features in ASP.NET 2.0. The new Membership services and security controls will provide your Web site with secure user authentication and protect its contents from anonymous users with a minimum of coding on your part. Personalization will allow your Web site users to have a customized view of its content based upon their previous configuration selections and settings.
