Although all of us know that ASP.NET 2.0 is starting to adhere to more internet standards such as XHTML, Section 508, and WCAG; How many of us really knows what that does for the customers of our websites?

I was lucky enough to work for a great company that had to convert and implement the Section 508 standard for their product about 2 years ago.  This was an eye opener (no pun intended) for me as I never realized that there was technology that was able to assit many disabled people to surf the net.  I know I am nieve. :)

Anyhow, on to the point.

While I was checking out MSDN about a month ago I printed off an article that looked interesting and never got a chance to read it.  Finally while I was at the airport in Las Vegas I pulled the article out and quickly consumed it.  I found that I couldn't put it down.  It was very engaging and extremely informative.  Needless to say I learned a lot about the new tools and 2.0 framework that I haven't really seen hyped up anywhere else.  I was very impressed.

If you have about an hour (or less for a good speed reader), check out this article.

The title is: Building ASP.NET 2.0 Web Sites Using Web Standards

It is well worth the time invested in reading it and the author has done an excellent job.

I have to say, I was impressed with the conference as well. Although the Microsoft "Way Ahead" speech about building the cake application on Monday freaked me out a tad. I have to say I got the most out of the SQL Server Pre Conference session. I have to say, she was much more prepared than most session speakers were. My biggest problem with any of them was the lack of materials in the binders provided. No slides means it was a little more difficult for me to reference my notes after the conference. Met a few really great people at the conference though, traded business cards, ideas, etc. All in all, I think it was a great one.

I would have to agree. I was having to write on the backs of other pages that were not for that session to take notes. I also think that they could have provided some blank pages in the back of the binders for the sessions they didn't have the slides for. Otherwise all in all, the conference was a good one. I would definitely try to do it yearly if possible. Maybe if we all send them some suggestions they will make it better at the next conference.
