AJAX Book, Atlas Book, and the Atlas Control Toolkit.

Its been a while since I have posted to my blog. Its been hectic with TechEd, work and family committments, but I am back again, at least for a while anyway.

As you have probably already seen over on Wally's blog, the "Beginning AJAX in ASP.NET" book has finally been released, and I was busy flogging those ... err.... promoting those at TechEd. By the way, if you are the student I met at TechEd who wanted a copy of the book to use for a give-away competition on your blog, please email me again as I lost your email, and dont know your name. Sorry... :(

Well one down, and another to go. I am again working on another book, this one is dedicated to Atlas and is creatively titled, "Beginning Atlas". Authors include Wally McClure, Steve Orr, Scott Cate, Craig Shoemaker and Steve Smith. Its only early days so it will be a little while before this one is published.

I have been slack and haven't made many changes/fixes to the PasswordStrength Extender that is part of the Atlas control toolkit on CodePlex. There are a couple of outstanding issues, but nothing major. Overall, feedback on the usage of that control has been quite good. Its good to see some more community involvement in the Control Toolkit project such as people like Garbin who are extremely knowledgeable on all things Atlas. There should be even more cool controls coming soon. Stay tuned....


  • Hi Paul,
    I was at your Tech-Ed presentation and was lucky enough to wake up just in time to put my hand up and win a copy of your book. I'm still working my way through it, but I'm impressed with it so far.
    Thanks very much - both for the book ad the informative presentation.

  • Thanks Mike, Glad you like the book and am also glad you managed to stay awake for even a small portion of the presentation. :-)
