POST UPDATED: Scroll down...

LVFALL07DEVCELL05 Looks like it's official and my second conference speaking gig (or perhaps first, because technically ALT.NET wasn't speaking as it was "convening an Open Spaces dialog") is at DevConnections in Vegas on November 6th. Later that week on Friday I'll be doing the ending Keynote at the PNP Summit in Redmond. (Still haven't figure out what to talk about...but I'm getting there.)

Here's my current DevConnections schedule.

This one is an old-ish abstract. We're going to likely split this talk into 30 minutes on Dynamic Data Controls and 30 minutes on MVC, although there's internal rumor of a full 60 minutes on MVC. We shall see.

AMS306: ASP.NET Beyond Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5
Scott Hunter and Scott Hanselman
See some of Microsoft's future plans for enhancing ASP.NET development including better CSS and AJAX integration, the new Dynamic Data Controls, a new Silverlight control, next generation search support, and support for dynamic languages like IronPython and Ruby. Find out how to use these capabilities to make your ASP.NET development even easier.

Eilon is very smart...he's a mastermind behind much of the MVC code you've heard so much about. I suspect this topic and abstract will be changed to be more interesting. We'll probably change it to "Building a Real-World Web Application with Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework v3.5, Part 3 of 2" or "Building a Real-World Web Application: Episode 4" and add Ajax and Silverlight to ScottGu's Part 1 and Part 2 application.

AMS301: Create Great Looking Web Applications Using the New Design and CSS Features in Visual Studio 2008
Eilon Lipton and Scott Hanselman
See how the new Web designer in Visual Studio 2008 makes it easy to build Web applications that are easier to use and more compelling. Find out how Visual Studio 2008 provides the capability to take full advantage of CSS and allows design and development to work seamlessly together in your ASP.NET applications.

For this talk I will likely provide the "jazz hands" to Eilon's most competent code-monkeying.

AMS302: Silverlight for ASP.NET Developers
Eilon Lipton and Scott Hanselman
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. See how developing Silverlight applications compares to ASP.NET development and how you can integrate Silverlight into your ASP.NET applications today to truly differentiate your web site. See how designers and developers can easily work together using Microsoft Expression to create these great user experiences. In addition you will get a glimpse of the Silverlight 1.1 Alpha, which will allow you to build rich experiences using the managed C# and Visual Basic programming models you are familiar with.

We will do our very best to not suck but we are being thrown in to the pool with both feet tied! ;) Three talks in a day is a lot. I'm happy to paired up in these cases.

UPDATED: We've changed the schedule and I think it'll be a much better show this way. Changes are highlighted. Eilon and I are also doing AMS302 so we're together for three talks!


Room 1

Room 2

10:30 – 11:30

AMS301: Building a Real World Web Application with Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework v3.5, Part 3 of 3

AMS305: Displaying Data with the new ListView and DataPager Controls in the .NET Framework 3.5

AMS306: Developing Data Driven Applications Using ASP.NET Dynamic Data
Speaker: Scott Hunter

ASP.NET dynamic data controls are part of a powerful, rich new framework that lets you create data driven ASP.NET applications very easily. It does this by automatically discovering the LINQ data model at runtime and deriving UI behavior from it. A scaffolding framework instantly provides a functional web site for viewing and editing data. This scaffolding can then be easily customized via a template, or by creating standard ASP.NET pages to override the default behavior. At the same time existing applications can easily integrate pieces of the scaffolding logic with their existing pages. In this talk, we will demonstrate how to build rich data driven Web applications from scratch with minimal effort.

AMS304: Introduction to the new ASP.NET Model View Controller (MVC) Framework
Speakers: Scott Hanselman and Eilon Lipton

One of the benefits of using a MVC methodology is that it helps enforce a clean separation of concerns between the models, views and controllers within an application. In the near future, ASP.NET will include support for developing web applications using an MVC based architecture. The MVC pattern can also help enable red/green test driven development (TDD) - where you implement automated unit tests, which define and verify the requirements of new code, first before you actually write the code itself. Join us for a dive into the new MVC Framework and you'll learn how to leverage this new alterative in your own applications.

AMS301: Building a Real World Web Application with Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework v3.5, Part 3 of 3
Speakers: Scott Hanselman and Eilon Lipton

In this session we'll extend the real-world application built in the previous two parts using Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5. We’ll see how Ajax technology can be cleanly added to an existing codebase to improve the user experience and use less bandwidth without difficulty. Then we’ll add Silverlight to the application to take the user experience to the next level and explore how complementary ASP.NET and Silverlight are and how easy it is to mix HTML and Silverlight seamlessly.

Hope it's good!

Hey Now Scott,
They look like great sessions. I was wondering what you feel are some great CSS resources? Good Luck,
Thanks for the info,

I read most of the great .NET blogs. Yours, ScottGu, etc. But they all seem to focus on Now, I regularly create applications and love it. But it seems that there is no ScottGu-for-winforms out there. Do you have any recommendations for great winforms blogs?

Thanks for all of the great posts. I love the Live Comment Preview. Congratulations on the MS job.

I'll be at these sessions, see ya there
October 23, 2007 19:02
hi Scott,

Pl. make sure , we get to read those sessions as articles or blogs in details after the Asp Connections are over.

This will really help us. More Information on MVC is expected from you.

Excellent. Read you posts daily. Look forward to sessions.
