For our August, 2008 meeting, we're psyched to welcome back Bill Robertson who will present a code-heavy session about JavaScript, ASP.NET AJAX, and integration with .net!




Javascript In The Real World
Wednesday, August 6, 2008
Intuit's Headquarters in Plano Texas
          Maps: Google | Yahoo | Mapquest | Microsoft


Session Summary

Javascript…the language of "I hope this works". This session will be a deep dive into javascript patterns and techiniques. We will cover the a variation of the MS Ajax object pattern with real world examples including inheritance. We will see alternatives to the horribly slow UpdatePanel, and tips for debugging javascript applications. The goal of this session will be you become the guy people wander the halls at work seeking to ask the "how do I do this" questions.


Speaker Bio

Bill started his career with c++ and the Win32 API. He studied mathematics and philosophy at the University of Arlington. After the release of .net 1.1 he transitioned the unmanaged world to the managed world with ASP.NET and hasn't regretted it. He believes it is the responsibility of developers to keep the luddites at bay, by constantly refining skills to create the best possible software and user experience. He currently works in New York as the VP of Development for Global Grind.
