I did some more hands on labs on ASP.NET 2.0. Later I went to the IIS 7 preview session. This was really a highlight! IIS 7 looks to become a really great product: all configuration for as well managed and unmanaged stuff is now done in the web.config. It is possible to delegate administrative tasks […]

I did some hands on labs on ASP.NET 2.0 and attended a session about asynchronous pages in ASP.NET 2.0. Dmitry (the speaker) showed various different methods on how to implement asynchronous pages: parallel, serial, with and without timeout… It was really a great session full of useful information! Dmitry also published the sample code used […]

Microsoft has just published the chapter “Enhancing performance with Caching” of the MCMS book Building Websites with Microsoft Content Management Server from Joel, Mei Ying and myself on MSDN:

I attended the “ASP.NET 2.0: Best Practices for Building Web Application UI with Master Pages, Themes and Site Navigation” session and had a chance to talk with the speaker and one of the developers about the problem with Themes in Content Management applications which I outlined here.  It seems there is currently really no other […]

As mentioned by Arpan there are no plans to support ASP.NET Web Parts with MCMS with SP2. Anyway, today I took some minutes to play around with the web parts using my ASP.NET 2.0 site (see here for details on how to setup such a site) and at least for a read-only website I did […]

I played around with master pages on my ASP.NET 2.0 MCMS web site (see here for details on how to setup such a site). My findings are that on a read-only website MCMS Placeholder controls work fine as well on the master page and on the content page. That’s what I assumed when I wrote […]

Even without MCMS SP2 being available you can already evaluate ASP.NET 2.0 with MCMS! You cannot use it on a read-write website as webauthor does not yet work with ASP.NET 2.0 but you can configure a website that is configured with ASP.NET 2.0 as MCMS read-only website. I just tried this and found that all out-of-the-box […]
