new WebCast: Orcas Extension Methods and RadControls

For those of you who didn't manage to get in to today's live WebCast and who are still looking for something to watch, I've just posted a new WebCast that shows you how you can use the new Extension Methods found in Visual Studio "Orcas" with RadControls. My goal was to make the WebCast "short", but 40 minutes later it is anything but. Feel free to skip along if you can't take my "enthusiastic" presentation of the basics, but for those willing to watch it all here's what you'll get:

  • An overview of Visual Studio "Orcas" Extension Methods
  • Live demo showing how to convert a simple PostBack app to an Ajax app in 2 seconds with RadAjax
  • Live demo showing how to use extension methods to extend RadAjax to automatically enable/disable Ajax based on browser
  • Live demo showing how to use extension methods to extend RadMenu to add easy web.config Skin support at the control level
  • My unmatched enthusiasm for RadControls and ASP.NET
I hope to make more WebCasts like this available to you in the near future. I'll try to keep them under the 30 minute mark going forward, but cut me some slack on my early foray into this new medium. Enjoy the WebCast and be sure to let me know if there is anything else you want to see "live"!
