Orlando .Net CodeCamp by ONETUG

The 2nd annual Orlando .Net CodeCamp event completed yesterday as an overall success. I thought it was once again very ell put together and managed. Thank you to the members of ONETUG and especially Shawn Weisfeld, Jessica Sterner, and Ken Tucker. You are all very valuable to the local .Net developer community. Also, a huge thank you goes to Seminole Community College for letting us use their facilities for this important event. We couldn't have had this without you.

"FrontPage Killer"

You can easily tell from a simple search on Google (or your favorite search engine) that the term "FrontPage killer" gets used a lot in reference to many different web site creation programs.

How To Implement the Client-Side DotNetNuke Calendar

There is a handy-dandy little calendar control that DotNetNuke (DNN) uses to insert a date value into a textbox control. However, it is not obvious in its usage. If you look at the source of any of the core modules or admin modules that use the control, you will see the following code in the HTML.

2nd Annual .Net CodeCamp

This is the second time they are putting on this FREE event. Last year was great!!! There were freebies for everyone (tech books, shirts, and more), including lunch. It appears that lunch is probably paid for again, but they make no mention of the other freebies this time. Last year it was held at UCF, but they moved it to SCC this year. If you are at all interested in .Net, this is a great event for learning, sharing, and networking.

Simple, Quick AJAX Thoughts

I have been using AJAX for some time now, though I do not code AJAX as you might think. I have been using the AJAX tools provided from Telerik to do so. Their tools have been straight-forward and easy to use much like any other web control. However, right now I am evaluating whether I should continue to use these tools with my most current project or move on to using Microsoft's AJAX tools. I have been looking through the "How To" videos at the following URL and I must say that this is a very interesting take on providing AJAX tools to developers. However, I believe that there is still too much for the developer to do upfront to always use these tools for your .Net AJAX needs.
