Stephen Walther from the ASP.NET Team joins James Senior to discuss an announcement: Microsoft is about to make the first contributions to the jQuery open source project! In the past 6 months, we’ve been busy working on three features: Templating, Data-Linking and Globalization. This video show demos of the contributions in action and how/when they will be available for developers to use.
Microsoft has delivered multiple technologies that focus on interoperability with non-Microsoft and Open Source technologies. In this video you will learn how to use the Eclipse tools today to build Silverlight applications that run on PCs and Macs, how to develop using combinations of Java, Ruby and PHP in addition to the standard Microsoft languages, and how Microsoft’s commitment to openness with the Azure Services Platform and the use of claims-based identity supports heterogeneous identity systems.
For more than thirty years, people have been learning the language of computers. It’s now time for technology to learn the language of people: touch, voice and gesture. This session will outline the design philosophy behind Microsoft’s efforts to create natural, intuitive and emotional products, and provide a glimpse into how the Surface User Experience team is working to make this vision a reality.
While at Microsoft TechEd 2008, James and I had the chance to talk with Brian Goldfarb about Silverlight. We start out discussing the new features, libraries, and other parts of the upcoming Silverlight 2.0 (now in beta).
James then asks Brian about the Deep Zoom demo’s we’d seen earlier, which leads us into a discussion about using Deep Zoom for document management, or, at least, digital asset management.
We then talk about the availability of Silverlight. The current beta may be used in production – as Hard Rock, NBC, and others are doing – while the final release will come out sometime in the rest of this year.
In this lesson, you will explore the various ASP.NET 2.0 server controls available in Visual Web Developer Express Edition. In addition, you will begin to get familiar with the windows in Visual Web Developer.keep looking »
