Nice Heres Some Info On ASPNET 20 Looks Like There Are Some Greeeat Things To Come Ive Been On Stage A

Nice, here’s some info on ASP.NET 2.0. Looks like there are some greeeat things to come!!

I’ve been on stage at a conference in which a member of the audience weblogged my
talk in real time. So I figure that liberates me to do the same with the talk I’m
in right now. The talk is Scott
‘s introduction to ASP.NET 2.0 at the ASP Connections conference in Palm
Springs. These are rough notes for now; I’ll clean ’em up later. I would assume that
more cogent stuff will start emerging in two weeks when Microsoft rolls this stuff
out for real at the PDC.

New stuff in ASP.NET 2.0:
Design goals: reduce amount of ASP.NET code you write today by 70%
40 new controls
User identity, personalization and roles
+ Can integrate with personalization system you already have
+ Everything is pluggable
