I will be giving a presentation entitled "Building Reach and Rich Internet Applciations using AJAX & Silverlight” for Microsoft .Net Developers at the "FairField/WestChester" Code Camp today (sorry for the late notice!) in STAMFORD, CT.
My Session Agenda: This session will target how to create web applications for broader reach using AJAX. I will cover AJAX Architecture and Features and Controls and Practical Implementations of AJAX in Real World Applications. This session also covers how to create ASP.Net applications using Silverlight 2.0, which is making its way into websites around the world to Build Rich Internet Applications (RIA).
