Today we had the opportunity to present at Borland’s Developer Conference in San Jose, CA.
David Treadwell gave the keynote for today’s general session, and I provided an ASP.NET “Whidbey” demo. In the keynote we build a demo from scratch that used the new SqlDataSource control, added paging/sorting, used a theme, used a masterpage, and finally supported database cache invalidation — all of this in less than 10 minutes with 0 lines of procedural code. This morning I had the chance to be introduced to Borland’s CEO, I wasn’t sure if he was in attendance at the general session – but it’s great to see the commitment that Borland has to the .NET Framework.
Tomorrow we kick off our ASP.NET RoadShow if you get a chance please sign-up. We’ll spend at least 1/3 of the time talking about ASP.NET “Whidbey”.
