Alessandro Gallo, better known in the Atlas (sorry AJAX Library/Extensions) community as Garbin, has justifiably won the mashup contest hosted over on the ASP.NET Atlas site.
Garbin is a really smart guy who knows a hell of a lot about Atlas/AJAX Library and is a recent contributor to the Atlas control toolkit. He is also a regular contributor and part runner (I think?) of the DotNetSlackers site which is where the mashup is hosted.
I encourage you to check out hisGeoTagIt!! application. He provides full source code as well.
Wanna free copy of our book, "Beginning AJAX in ASP.NET". Then head over and check out the competition currently underway on Long Zheng's blog.
2 copies to give away.
Go on.... you know you want to.
Dont know if this has been blogged about before, and franky dont really care. If its a duplicate, I am sure will live with it.
Been pretty slack lately. Busy writing another book, spending time with the family, and letting my blog reading fall behind. I only have 449 unread blog emails in my blog folder in Outlook. I'll get round to them soon.....
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....
