We kicked off the ASP.NET Roadshow last night in Dallas, Texas with a packed house (almost 300 people). We started with a brief introduction to ASP.NET, did some cool Tips/Tricks demos — like building a ‘Page Loading…’ example and a dynamic image generator. After a short-break we talked about about some security best practices, specifically around SQL script injection attacks and cross-site scripting attacks (XSS) — lot’s of people probably went home last night and tried some of these techniques on their own sites! Finally we wrapped up with about a 45 minute overview of ASP.NET “Whidbey”.
Check out www.asp.net/roadshow/ to see if we’re coming to your city — depending upon the success of the U.S. event we’ll also look into some European and Asia/Pacific events too (any excuse to finally go to Australia!!).
Special thanks to Brian Moore (*the* Microsoft Developer Evangelist) and the local user group leaders Stephen Swienton (Fort Worth .NET User’s Group) and Keven Markham (Dallas .NET User’s Group) — G. Andrew Duthie will be presenting at the Fort Worth .NET User’s Group next month on ASP.NET “Whidbey”. And of course INETA who has helped coordinate and organize all the events!
