Building Rich, Dynamic Web Experiences with Microsoft Silverlight, ASP.NET and ASP.NET AJAX

Microsoft® Silverlight™ is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web. Silverlight’s architecture enables you to take advantage of the latest web development techniques, because the rendered objects are full-fledged members of the HTML document in the browser. This session will highlight how you can enhance Silverlight applications by applying these techniques. We’ll explore how to use ASP.NET AJAX to provide dynamic updating and asynchronous server communications for a Silverlight object in a web page. We'll show you how to build ASP.NET AJAX controls (server and client-side components) to encapsulate the XAML, Javascript, ASP.NET code and managed code that comprise the Silverlight object, allowing you to incrementally enrich your ASP.NET applications while preserving a familiar control-based programming model. You’ll also get a sneak peek at some Silverlight server controls that are part of the ASP.NET Futures project.

Building/room location, time and registration TBD.
