Event Overview

Join us for a free, half-day presentation where we’ll explore identity management, interactivity and support for cross-browser and cross-platform applications. We’ll explore how Windows CardSpace uses a standards-based, interoperable framework to simplify digital identity management and fight both phishing and identity theft. We’ll also roll up our sleeves and dig into the best practices of ASP.NET AJAX (formerly code-named “Atlas”) and discuss the client-side script libraries and server components that provide a robust development framework for developers of all stripes. Blink and you’ll miss these lively sessions hosted by your local MSDN Events team. Register today!

Session #1: Next Generation Identity Management: Windows CardSpace

Windows CardSpace (formerly code-named "InfoCard") is part of .NET 3.0 and provides a standards-based interoperable solution for managing diverse digital identities. With phishing attacks and identity theft deterring people from the Web, CardSpace makes it safer and easier for users to manage online identities and authenticate themselves to web sites and services. After an introduction to identity management, this session will provide a step-by-step tour of how CardSpace is part of the broader standards based Identity Metasystem. We’ll cover how CardSpace fits into the .NET 3.0 framework, how it uses Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) for its WS-* web-services stack and how it can be used today within your web site.

Session #2: Revving up Cross-Browser and Cross-Server Websites with the Microsoft AJAX Library

ASP.NET AJAX is not just for ASP.NET developers –- the Microsoft AJAX Library also provides productivity benefits for developers who target other server frameworks. The Microsoft AJAX Library is a standalone collection of the standards-based JavaScript classes included in ASP.NET AJAX, and is supported by most popular browsers. It’s perfect for building client-centric web applications that integrate with any backend data provider. In this session, we’ll provide an overview of the client-side script library and a detailed demonstration of how to inject greater interactivity into an existing web site using the Microsoft AJAX Library –– regardless of what technology the site is based on or what browser it’s running in. By the end of this session, you’ll be ready to create richer, more dynamic websites with the Microsoft AJAX Library.

Session #3: Best Practices for Building Next Generation Web Applications Using Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX

ASP.NET AJAX can add new energy and excitement to stale websites. While previous presentations have offered library feature tours, this session provides the top lessons learned about how to write robust and secure ASP.NET AJAX-based web applications. We’ll review the architecture of ASP.NET AJAX and check off the steps you need to create robust, scalable and secure AJAX web applications. You’ll leave this session with the confidence you need to build industrial strength AJAX applications.
