FTP Publishing with the new Windows Azure Release
There is a good chance you might have stumbled upon the new Windows Azure Release that we made on June 6th. Scott Guthrie’s Post quite summarizes the overall new features. One of my favorite features is the Windows Azure Websites and the ability to do publish files to Azure using your FTP Client. Windows Azure Websites offers low cost (free upto 10 websites) web hosting where you can deploy any website that can run on IIS 7.0, quickly.

It allowed me to connect to the Northwind database through “Generate from database” and I selected just three tables “Products”, “Categories” and “Suppliers” table for simplicity. At the end of the wizard, we ......

ASP.NET 4.0 QueryExtender, AutoCompleteExtender and UpdatePanel – mashing it up all
(this is a repost since the initial post had a few issues that couldn’t be corrected) I am playing with the ASP.NET 4.0 QueryExtender released as a part of the Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1.
