New Home for the Atlanta .NET User Group Web Site

We had some problems with our domain name registration and DNS entry when the name came up for renewal last week. As a result, we’ve moved to a new home at The new site is based on SharePoint and offers considerably more functionality for considerably less effort than the old site.

Please spread the word, and if you have a blog, help us get back on the first page of search results by linking to the new site.

Title: Working with new ASP.NET features in .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1

Synopsis: When ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 was released in January of 2007, not all features from "Atlas" were included in the final build. These became part of a program called "ASP.NET Futures," and were included as periodic releases in CTP drops. With the release of .NET 3.5 SP1, several of these preview features were promoted to first class features of ASP.NET. This presentation will provide an overview of these new components, including the ASP.NET AJAX browser history control and AJAX script combining, which improves performance in ASP.NET AJAX applications. The presentation will also cover .NET 3.5 SP1 data centric technologies such as the Entity Framework, ASP.NET Dynamic Data, and ADO.Net Data Services, as well as how these tools play together.

Bio: James Ashley is a Senior Consultant with Magenic Technologies in Atlanta specializing in ASP.NET AJAX, WCF and WPF.
