Charlottesville .NET User Group Meeting: Sept. 18th.

The Charlottesville .NET User Group will meet on September 18th from 6:30-8:30PM at the SNL Headquarters building (One SNL Plaza, Charlottesville VA 22902) G. Andrew Duthie, Microsoft Corp. will present “Controlling AJAX when youre out of control” While implementing and troubleshooting AJAX functionality in an application is rarely easy, it gets even harder when you dont have complete control over the site where you have to implement it. Shared hosting environments, blog accounts on large blog sites, etc. are situations where you may have only limited control over where and when your javascript gets loaded and executed. In this talk, Microsoft developer evangelist G. Andrew Duthie will walk you through some examples of how you can overcome limitations on such sites, and how to troubleshoot some of the inevitable issues you may run into. Some basic understanding of javascript and AJAX is assumed. Examples will span from simple mouseover image manipulation to implementing controls such as Microsofts Virtual Earth and Vertigos Slideshow Silverlight photo gallery.
