EdgeUG: March jQuery and Velocity

Edge User Group
Wed, 17 Mar 2010, 18:00 - 21:30 (Add to calendar) GMT
Microsoft London (Cardinal Place) , London, GB

Our third event of the year is as strong as ever!

First up George Adamson  will be walking us through a fast paced introduction to jQuery and all it's cross-browser loveliness! Topics will include the CSS selector syntax, binding, handling events, effects, plugins and ajax! A subject of particular interest to those developers looking to work on new ASP.Net projects now that jQuery comes bundled with Visual Studio!

This will be followed by Phil Pursglove, here to introduce us to Velocity, Microsoft's new distributed caching offering. In this session we'll look at why you might want a distributed cache, how to configure your applications (and servers!) to use it, and how to manage it when it goes live.
