The long awaited PDC 2003 is almost here – we’re really excited because we can finally talk publicly about some of the awesome new stuff coming in ASP.NET 2.0. If you’re coming to PDC, please stop by and say hi. I’m giving 3 talks:
- ASP.NET: Programming with the Membership, Role Management and Security System in ASP.NET “Whidbey”
- ASP.NET: Programming with the Personalization System in ASP.NET “Whidbey”
- ASP.NET: Programming Using Advanced Caching Techniques in ASP.NET “Whidbey”
These sessions are going to be really (REALLY) fun with tons of demos. I’m personally really excited to show some of the work we’ve done for the ASP.NET Cache. Many people have asked for so long about database cache invalidation — that’s just one of the awesome new features supported in ASP.NET 2.0’s cache. The even more exicting news is that as complete as “Whidbey“ will appear at PDC it’s only an alpha build — inclusive of only 2/3s of the total work/feature set for ASP.NET 2.0. Yes — that means there is even more new stuff that will show up in the ASP.NET 2.0 beta!!!
Next week several people from the ASP.NET 2.0 team will be presenting at ASP.NET Connections in Palm Springs. Scott Guthrie will talk about ASP.NET 2.0 in his keynote and whet your appetite for things to come 🙂
