Earlier this spring we published a really popular series of short, focused, online ASP.NET videos that we called the “How Do I?” series. The series walked through how to use Visual Web Developer to take advantage of the cool new ASP.NET 2.0 features like Master Pages, Membership, Role Management, Profiles, 3-tier Data Access, Themes, Web Parts, etc.
If you haven’t watched these videos yet, I'd highly recommend setting aside an hour or two to review them all (each video is only 10-15 minutes long). They are a really great way to quickly obtain a very good understanding of the new ASP.NET 2.0 features and how they all fit together. You can watch each video online for free here.
The series was so popular that we asked Joe Stagner to join the ASP.NET team fulltime to help us produce even more. Our plan is to have him publish a brand new ASP.NET “How Do I?” video on the www.asp.net web-site each week going forward from now on.
The first set of videos that Joe is building out will cover how to use Atlas to build Ajax applications with ASP.NET. This week he published the first two videos on this:
- Get started with “Atlas” (10 minutes, 2 seconds)
- Get started with the “Atlas” Control Toolkit (12 minutes, 9 seconds)
Hope this helps,
P.P.S. AlanL from Vertigo has been posting some really nice tutorials on how to use some of the controls within the Atlas Control Toolkit. I’d recommend checking out these two great posts to read: Atlas: Creating Better Looking Checkboxes with the ToggleButtonExtender and Atlas: Creating a Confirmation Using the ModalPopup Extender
