Come along and find out what’s in store for both the ASP.NET platform and Visual Studio in the upcoming release. As web developers, there’s a lot to get excited about including many features you can take advantage of in your existing projects.

Session 1 – Visual Studio 2008
Visual Studio 2008 (formerly code named “Orcas”) brings with it a host of features for the web developer. In this session, we demonstrate the benefits you can get out of the Visual Studio toolset when working on your existing ASP.NET 2.0 projects as well as for new ASP.NET 3.5 projects. There are many improvements in the IDE so we’ll need to focus on JavaScript Intellisense and debugging improvements, the new designer, CSS enhancements and a few more.

Session 2 - .NET Fx 3.5
In this session we’ll take a look at some of the new features in ASP.NET 3.5. New server controls, ASP.NET AJAX integration, not to mention Language Integrated Query (or LINQ), we’ll take a look at the lot. And while we’re at it we’ll see where Microsoft Silverlight fits in the picture.
