MSDN Webcast: Digging Deep into the World of UNC Hosting with IIS 6.0 - Level 200

Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM PT Pacific Time

Chris Adams, Supportability Beta Lead, Microsoft

Scaling Internet Information Server (IIS) 6.0 solutions on to remote servers can be tricky for many administrators. In this presentation, we will drive hard to clarify this process by explaining how to set up, troubleshoot, and further optimize IIS 6.0 remote server installations. IIS 6.0 introduces two methods of UNC hosting; the first enables IIS to send the browser’s credentials to the remote UNC server, and the second gives IIS the ability to store these credentials in the IIS metabase for quick retrieval and use. Although there are some password expiration risks associated with this second UNC hosting method, it offers administrators the ability to elevate privileges without requiring them to have knowledge of how those privileges interact with authentication.

MSDN Webcast: ASP .NET Caching - Level 200

Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 1:00 PM-2:30 PM Pacific Time

Mike Snell, Microsoft Practice Director,

ASP .NET caching is one of the fundamentally great features inside of the Microsoft® .NET framework since it provides a simple method of increasing your web application’s performance. Data that is used over-and-over in your application or is updated semi-regularly (like a catalog, list of contacts, store locations, etc.) make great candidates for caching. Join us to learn the right caching strategy to increase throughput on your servers and put smiles on your user's faces.

MSDN Webcast: Provider Model : The Flexible Design Pattern of ASP.NET 2.0 - Level 400

Wednesday, October 27, 2004 - 2:30 PM-4:00 PM Pacific Time

Jeff Julian, Senior Consultant, Vision Data Solutions

NOTE: This session is based on the Beta 1 version of ASP.NET 2.0. More and more times we find ourselves needing a well-defined API, but the flexibility of switching between implementations.  A perfect example of the issue would be the choice of data provider you need for certain functionality.  The project currently uses a particular source for the data, but the next version will be using something else.  The Provider Model used by ASP.NET allows us to switch out or extend functionality of the previous API with ease.  Because the model is programmed against using an abstract base API, the developer does not have to worry about what the derived class is, but how it will be implemented.  Join us in this Webcast as we discuss this model and walk through samples of different uses of the pattern.

MSDN Webcast: Working with Data using the Enhanced GridView and DetailsView Controls in ASP.NET 2.0 - Level 200

Friday, october 29, 2004 - 9:00 AM-10:30 AM Pacific Time

Ken Getz, Senior Consultant, MCW Technologies

NOTE: This session is based on the Beta 1 version of ASP.NET 2.0. The GridView control in ASP.NET 2.0 ain't your father's grid. It's similar enough to the ASP.NET 1.x DataGrid that you can get started right away, but its capabilities have been enhanced - it's far simpler to use, requires less code, and provides far more power than the DataGrid Control. In this webcast, we will demonstrate how to display and edit data using the GridView control, how to work with the GridView and DetailsView together, and how to take advantage of several of the GridView controls events to get just the behavior you need.
