Telerik's new stuff is pretty sweet, check out the ONLINE DEMO of their new ASP.NET AJAX suite. RadGrid handles sorting, filtering, and paging of hundreds of thousands of records in milliseconds, and the RadEditor loads up to 4 times faster and the navigation controls now support binding to web services on the client.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

I have been keeping an eye of jQuery from last few months. But it would be great that ASP.NET will embrace jQuery is a really easy way as do with providers. Please make some very small tutorials ( Video will be best, along with tutorials ) So that we all can produce great applications with ASP.NET, AJAX 1.0 and jQuery.
In particular I would like to see how you can use jQuery and the standard validation tools to build a rememberthemilk.com style registration form. Replacing the client side validation code with jQuery.
Descriptions and samples for everything, multiple getting started guides, etc.
Then there are guys like Dave Ward at Encosia.com, and Rick Strahl at http://west-wind.com/weblog/ who keep doing new things with JQuery and ASP.Net (check out Rich's site for a ASP.Net Calendar control based off of the JQuery Calendar control--so much better than the ASP.Net AJAX Calendar control)
Comments are closed.
Also it looks like you had a moment of "revelation" during the show when you said that if you make something very plug able it will be very successful. Maybe MVC will be it :D Although I think it kind'a already is.
