Do-it-yourself forums WebCast and code online now

Thanks to everyone that managed to join us live today for the "do-it-yourself forums" WebCast! The WebCast went very well and we successfully showed you how you can build a custom forums application in no time at all. We also demoed one of the latest features in the new RadAjax "Prometheus"- the RadAjaxManagerProxy. This new tool in the ASP.NET AJAX-based RadAjax finally makes it easy to add Ajax to UserControls and Pages in a MasterPage-based website. Check out more about this new proxy control in a recent post I made on the blogs.

The official recording of today's live event will be available sometime next week, but for those of you who want to see what we did before that time, I have a pre-recorded version of today's WebCast available right now for your viewing pleasure. The pre-recorded version is almost identical to today's live event, so check it out and see how you can use the RadControls to build a forums application in less than an hour.

Todd, the webcast seems to have been taken down, do you have an alternate url?

The video has been fixed, so you should have no problems viewing it now. Enjoy!

I'm trying to view this webcase because it's exactly what I need to do with my site, but get an error. A screen comes up saying 'Unable toembed this contenttype. Download this media.' So when i click to download it, it errors out. Can I get this webcast somehow?

@Amana- Sorry for the video trouble. It seems has broken many of my older videos. As an alternative, you can watch the live (recorded) version of this forums webcast here:


You may also want to view this short video that shows an extended version of the webcast forums:

The code isn't available for these forums (yet), but I'll be sure to let you know if it is. Just stay tuned to this blog.

I was wondering if a newer version of this has com out yet with the latest and greatest of VS 2008?

Todd Anglin said...

@Amanda- It's not quite the "latest and greatest" of this app, but we did recently ship a new Telerik MVC Forums demo app that you download here: It is functionally very similar, so take a look and let me know if that works for you.


Amanda said...

Hope that helps-
