Web Developer Day '09 [notes to be completed]

The second ever Web DD is over and I'm finally home after a nice early start and lengthy drive. However once again it proved to be a worthwhile event with interesting as well as exciting presentations. Old school talk breakdown coming up (These are preliminary, i'll add to it when I get a chance):

Web Developer Day '09: Speaker / Thoughts
Dan Maharry Lightweight Test Framework Some recapping over It would be very easy to remember the period between the release of ASP.NET 3.5 and 4.0 as the time when ASP.NET MVC was made. But it's worth remembering that ASP.NET 3.5 service pack 1 and several out of band releases for ASP.NET and IIS came out as well. This presentation will cover as many of the other additions to web development as can be fit into an hour.
ASP.NET 3.5 - Miss Something?
Alex Mackey Parallelisation Oslo We will take a look at some of the great new features available in Visual Studio 2010 and .net 4. I am currently writing "Beginning .NET 4.0 with supporting technologies" for Apress and will share my discoveries and thoughts so far. The contents of this session will be partly dependent on what Microsoft release in the coming months but will probably include the more finished areas such as Azure, Language enhancements and Parallel programming.
What's good in .NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010

  • OutPut cache declarations
  • HttpRuntime.Cache
  • Compressing ViewState / storing viewstate in the session
  • Using ScriptManager to compress js files into single downloads
This one goes up to 11, or how to write scalable ASP.NET
Sebastian Lambla MVC Rocks MVC best practices
Mike Ormond Mmmm control over Client Ids, Cache using a Provider Model, some good stuff here In this session we take a wander through the landscape of ASP.NET, pausing briefly to admire what has been, before gazing longingly over the horizon and into the future of ASP.NET 4.0. As well as enhancements to Visual Studio and the design and development experience, we can expect to enjoy improvements in the core platform targeted at scale and performance, significantly more control over WebForms apps, simplification and extensions of data controls and significant new innovations in ASP.NET AJAX. I might even squeeze in a mention of ASP.NET MVC and Dynamic Data as well

Hope to meet some new people there next time!
