Below is a link to an article I wrote for the May issue of Computer magazine on Ajax-style web development and ASP.NET codename "Atlas." The publishers at IEEE were gracious enough to allow me to make the article available on my blog otherwise it would cost non-subscribers to read it online. The only request is readers should read and agree to the following notice prior to downloading.
