Visual Studio .NET 2008 on Thursday? - Looks like Friday now

According to BetaNews.com, start looking for Visual Studio 2008 on Thursday.  The download page at: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa700830.aspx says the product is here, but alas, I do not see it yet.  That's not stopping me from refreshing the page every 5-10 minutes.  Enjoy the wait.  Intellisense for Javascript makes the wait worth it.

PS. It appears the page has been updated and the references to Beta 2 have been removed.

PSS.  A new article on BetaNews.com says that it will be out on Friday.

Fixed the files on the podcast

After a complete screwup on my part, I have fixed the files on the podcast server.  I think I am going to have to go to manage my xml feed better.  The keyboard model isn't getting it done.

In the past, working with data has required learning a number of different API sets for each kind of data you needed to access. Relational data requires ADO. XML uses Xpath, XQuery and the XML Dom. Objects require you to write your own manipulation code. In this video, Jim Wooley (MVP in VB) continues to look at the Language INtegrated Query (LINQ) project and demonstrates how to leverage it to use a single API to work against XML, objects and relational data. In it, we continue exploring the ThinqLinq web site by demonstrating creating and querying XML to create and consume RSS feeds using ASP.Net with Visual Studio code name "Orcas". The video concludes with an overview of the language changes in C#3.0 and VB 9.0 which enable the querying functionality.
 
This video is part 3 of 3. The code samples and slides are available at http://devauthority.com/files/13/jwooley/entry38500.aspx. Jim can be contacted via his web site at http://devauthority.com/blogs/jwooley or at the site for his upcoming LINQ book at http://LinqInAction.net.

Difference between our two AJAX books

One of the questions that I keep getting is, "What is the difference between our two AJAX books?"  Let me explain the two and I think this will resolve the questions:

 

Our "Beginning AJAX with ASP.NET" book is about how to use AJAX technologies with ASP.NET.  In this book, we cover the basics of AJAX and how they can work with ASP.NET.  This book covers the gamut of AJAX technologies.  Along with covering the basics, we cover Sarissa, AJAX.NET Pro Library, along with a sneak peek of Atlas, which would become ASP.NET AJAX.  This book is more than just ASP.NET AJAX/Atlas.

Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX 

Our "Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX" book is a fairly detailed look into the ASP.NET AJAX product from Microsoft.
