Following my FUNdaments presentation tonight to the East Bay .NET user group on the options available to ASP.NET developers for using AJAX type methods for grabbing information/content from a server from the client side browser, the code can be found here and the presentation can be found here.
Once again Beth Massi rocked on the main presentation about VB10, C# 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010. Lots of goodies to look forward to. That said it cracks me up that MSFT is adding more capabilities to facilitate development with less type safety and interaction with dynamic languages. It's OK I get it that it's part of the natural development to more powerful language capabilities with the improved capabilities of intellisense and the background compiler in Visual Studio, but I'll have to get over it after having had type safetly beaten into me for the last few years.
