Speaker and Topic:
So, there you are immersed in desktop or web app development, battling current
or legacy technologies in Fox 2.x, VFP, SQL, Access and/or VB. Your clients
want it all web enabled, and you're bouncing around between ASP, WebConnection,
Cold Fusion, or open source. You're finally getting a handle on ADO and stored
procedures, mastering OLEDB, and finally realize that ActiveX is nothing more
than OLE, and DNA is just a marketing term for n-tier distributed
architectures. ASP has revved from 2.0 to 3.0, IIS 4 to IIS 5, you've gotten
2000 installed and stable, and now you have to learn... 'Dot What'? NO WAY!
But you have to at least understand what .NET is, why it is, how it works and
what it all means. You have to take it seriously enough to at least understand
how it will affect you. And now, here's your chance.
The annual meeting of the ADD will feature Martin Triplett of Magenic (see
below) presenting on .NET. His presentation is being specially customized for
the ADD membership to provide an overview and introduction of what .NET is,
what a .NET application looks like, and an overview of the breadth and depth of
this new paradigm shift from Microsoft that is now bearing down upon us. It
will include demonstrations (time allowing) of web services, web forms,
winforms, and the data engine ADO.NET, and will include information on the
languages and platform foundation. He will be showing demo applications and
sample code, and he should leave you with at least a good understanding of what
it is and how it may affect you in the coming years.
