DevDays 2007 Day 1 - ASP.Net highlights
Day 1 of DevDays 2007 in Amsterdam RAI was a great success if you'd ask me. I have visited DevDays 2004 as well, and I remembered that I then found it very much like a big Microsoft commercial back then. This year however I really enjoyed the sessions by Scott Guthrie and Dino Esposito. I attended a lot of ASP.Net related sessions which really inspired me to add more Silverlight and AJAX components to my site(s). Also some information on when-and-how to apply LINQ was very interesting.
After this day I added some new bookmarks and RSS-feeds which may be worth viewing for you as well. Make sure that if you want to know more about Silverlight to view the posts on Scott Guthrie's blog on "Silverlight Airlines". That demo app. was really mind-blowing if you ask me. Now it's up to myself to create such rich user experiences. Somehow it always looks a lot easier when it's demonstrated... when trying to apply those tricks myself in my own applications, it always seems to be more difficult. :) As soon as some new Silverlight/AJAX page are live I will post it here so can give your honest opinion about it. Make sure to check out the following blogs to stay up-to-date about the most recent technologies:
