ASP.NET "Atlas" and Web 2.0

Sessions Run Time
4 5 hours

This course gives a brief history of recent developments in Web development technologies, including the conglomeration of features that is sometimes referred to as Web 2.0. The course describes the problems that have led to the popularization of a technology called Ajax and explains exactly what Ajax is. Then the course drills down into a new technology from Microsoft, code-named "Atlas", that provides a framework for building Ajax-enabled applications with much less work than has been required in the past.

In this course, you will learn:
  • What Web 2.0 and Ajax are and why they’re such a hot trend.
  • What "Atlas" is and how "Atlas" facilitates development of Ajax-enabled web pages.
  • How to use new "Atlas" controls.
  • How "Atlas" provides both server-side and client-side features.

Familiarity with ASP.NET is helpful.
