Saturday morning saw the second free WebDD [http://www.developerdeveloperdeveloper.com/webdd09] conference take place. Amongst the presentations, Mike Ormond [http://blogs.msdn.com/mikeormond/] and Alex Mackey [http://www.simpleisbest.co.uk/] spoke on things forthcoming in .NET 4.0, Sebastien Lambla [http://serialseb.blogspot.com/] spoke at a rate of knots about MVC best practices despite his computer blue-screening mid-presentation, and I introduced those interested to IIS 7.0 Extensions, the Lightweight Test Framework, the new ASP.NET Chart Control and the History State and Script Combining features of the ScriptManager. The code and slides for this presentation can be found here [/file.axd?file=WebDD09_Slides_And_Code.zip] and via the downloads page [/page/Downloads.aspx].
Thanks to Dave [http://blogs.ipona.com/davids/] and to Phil [http://weblogs.asp.net/Plip/] for setting up WebDD, the speakers, attendees and MS event staff for giving up their Saturday to make this a great event and finally to Janey for coming to support me while I tried not to um or ah too much through my first presentation.
