Brad Abrams Presented A No-Slides, Code Only Session at AJAXWorld

For those who missed it, Brad's encore presentation will be streaming on SYS-CON.TV

AJAXWorld delegates today saw a no-slides, code-only presentation that started with a blank directory and built a data-driven, AJAX enabled, ASP.NET web application from scratch that implemented common AJAX patterns with the rich set of AJAX Control Toolkit, accessed data with LINQ, and implemented standards-based styling and layout using CSS and clean HTML.

 Brad also presented the new features of ASP.NET 3.5 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and how they integrated together to provide the world's most productive web development experience.

This session used the 100% free .NET Framework and Visual Studio tools, and the resulting application worked with all browsers, Safari, Firefox and, of course, IE.

Brad Abrams is currently the Group Program Manager for the UI Framework and Services team at Microsoft which is responsible for delivering the developer platform that spans both client and web based applications, as well as the common services that are available to all applications. Specific technologies owned by this team include ASP.NET, Atlas and Windows Forms. He was a founding member of both the Common Language Runtime, and .NET Framework teams.

Brad has been designing parts of the .NET Framework since 1998 when he started his framework design career building the BCL (Base Class Library) that ships as a core part of the .NET Framework. He was also the lead editor on the Common Language Specification (CLS), the .NET Framework Design Guidelines, the libraries in the ECMA\ISO CLI Standard, and has been deeply involved with the WinFX and Windows Vista efforts from their beginning.

He co-authored Programming in the .NET Environment, and was editor on .NET Framework Standard Library Annotated Reference Vol 1 and Vol 2 and the Framework Design Guidelines.

For those who missed it, Brad's encore presentation will be streaming on SYS-CON.TV.
