The ASP.NET Connection show in Orlando was a fantastic event. Thanks to everyone who came to a session. Here are the slides and demos for everyone who asked for them.

What ASP.NET Developers Should Know About JavaScript


In the last half of this session we re-factored a dashboard type application with an eye towards using properly abstracted JavaScript code. The dashboard page was loosely based on the code from my Extreme ASP.NET column in the March MSDN Magazine: Charting with ASP.NET and LINQ.

Part of the refactoring process was removing all signs of JavaScript from the .aspx file to achieve the separation of behavior and markup that defines “unobtrusive JavaScript”. If you give JavaScript the focus it deserves, it can love you back.
