We can all agree that Microsoft’s ASP.NET AJAX Extensions rock, but the requirement for ASP.NET 2.0 can certainly be an AJAX roadblock for some.
For the unfortunate souls stuck in the confines of ASP.NET 1.x, there is good news however. Infragistics’ NetAdvantage for ASP.NET has AJAX built directly into the web controls, and it can run on all versions of the .NET Framework, even the granddaddy of them all, .NET Framework 1.0. In this webcast you will learn how to ajaxify your ASP.NET 1.0/1.1/2.0 applications using Infragistics’ NetAdvantage for ASP.NET web controls, particularly the WARP panel.
Presenters: Joe Stagner and Tony Lombardo
Joe Stagner is a Senior Program manager in Microsoft Web Developer Community Team
Tony Lombardo is a Guidasan with the User Experience Group at Infragistics, the world’s leading publisher of presentation layer tools. Tony has a deep technical background with ASP.NET, and has authored a number of ASP.NET WebControls during his time with Infragistics. Tony co-runs the Central Jersey .NET User Group, and often writes for both online and printed publications.

Every day a few folks send be pages of code and ask be to make it work for them (No Kidding)
Joshua Folkets is a developer that I had dialog with in the past and this we we sent me code for me to USE rather han fix.
What a treat – he just sent to me and said “I thought I’d send you this in case you find someone who might use it.”
And here is a link to the code (use at your own risk) …..
Joshua – You ROCK !
A couple of days ago eWeek posted a panic attack here http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,2110554,00.asp?kc=EWEWEMNL040307EP37A that sensationalized a paper that Fortify published here: http://www.fortifysoftware.com/advisory.jsp
I posted a link to the article yesterday – sort of tung in cheek, but decided to wait until I could refer to more information because folks might not intuit my point.
So let me offer this subtle hint: THERE IS NOTHING NEW HERE !
Security companies market themselves by generating press about their research – fair enough.
Tech Media Companies like eWeek naturally sensationalize to keep their readership flowing (the National Enquirer model of Journalism).
Now, it’s not like I don’t take developer security seriously. I spent about 4 of the past 6 years focused mostly on developer security.
But it’s time we fix the perspective a but. Fortify wants to identify the AJAX venders as the source of these security problems. (And not just Microsoft but basically everyone that makes Ajax Software.)
It’s great that security companies are looking at the rapid adoption of Ajax and calling attention to security issues. But, at the risk of sounding redundant …
THERE IS NOTHING NEW HERE !
ScottGu has replied here to some of the specific call outs in the above referenced article : http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/04/04/json-hijacking-and-how-asp-net-ajax-1-0-mitigates-these-attacks.aspx
Since it seems like there are still a good number of developers that are not yet up to speed on Web Development security and are particularly interested in how these security challenges relate to doing Ajax style programming…….
I’ve been talking to my old security buddy Mark Brown about resurrecting the “Digital Black Belt” Secure Development Series to do an extended “Developing Secure Web Applications with ASP.NET and Microsoft Ajax”.
Please offer your opinions so that I can gage interest.
I’ve been using the beta and installed the release version last night.
Check it out…….
I got this today from my former team mate and IT Guru Chris Avis
I do a lot of traveling in my role. As such, it has always been a little cumbersome to let me friends and family know when I am free and not free. In preparation for a session I am delivering tomorrow I made a blog post about the new “Insert Calendar” feature in Outlook 2007 that makes it super simple to share your calendar and availability with anyone….regardless of how they access their email and what client they use.
If you have a hectic schedule like I do, your friends and family will truly appreciate this feature.
