jQuery with ASP.NET Presentation at Portland .NET User Group on Tuesday


:P
On this page:

I'll be doing my annual presentation at the Portland Area .NET User Group (PADNUG) next Tuesday August 5th, 2008. The topic this time around is Using jQuery with ASP.NET which is a fun presentation that covers JavaScript and specifically jQuery use with ASP.NET without using ASP.NET Ajax.

Here's the presentation abstract:

Using jQuery with ASP.NET

jQuery is a compact and powerful JavaScript library that is quickly becoming one of the most popular client-side libraries. jQuery’s appeal lies in its compact implementation and flexible and elegant use of selectors to pick up document elements that can then be manipulated using jQuery’s flexible set of useful functions in a browser-independent way. From AJAX functionality, to easy browser  independent DOM manipulation, to simple effects, this compact library provides many ways to make client scripting much easier. Additionally, a vast community of add-in authors have added hundreds of extremely useful and easy to use plug-ins that provide many useful features to common client-side tasks. In this session, I’ll demonstrate a host of features of jQuery as well as demonstrate how you can integrate this powerful client-side library with ASP.NET on the server. We’ll look at how to provide JSON services through ASP.NET in a couple of ways as well as looking into ways that you can integrate existing components and plug-ins as ASP.NET server controls with a little bit of work to provide ASP.NET-style interaction with jQuery.

When and Where

Meeting Date: Tuesday, August 5th, 2008
Meeting Time: 6pm

If you haven't come out to PADNUG before, this is a good time as any to do it. User Groups are a great place to see a presentation on a topic you're interested without having to go off to a conference and hey it's free. It's also a good way to get involved in the local developer community and network with other developers, shoot the shit or just plain see and hear what others are doing. There's also some time after the presentation down at a local pub to grab some beer and ask questions and harass of the speaker <s>. Or something like that...

If you're in the Portland Area or even a little further out, stop by and enjoy a really fun presentation (for me at least).

See 'ya there...

Any chance you'll be swinging back to the east coast soon Rick? It would be great if you could visit our user group.

Sounds exciting, I'll try to get off work early to make it!

A great topic. I've been learning this combination of technologies lately and for certain activities it's hard to beat.

Will you be posting the presentation here afterward?
I'm from Israel, so Portland is far away :) but I would really like to see this presentation.

Thanks

Very informative presentation Rick. The jTemplates plugin combined with AJAX data looks especially handy. Have you posted the presentation and code yet? If so, can you remind me again what the url is. Thanks!

@Ben - you can find the samples here:

It doesn't include the Amazon Book picker example mainly because I need to disconnect it from the WebLog specific code (mainly the backend). So the jTemplates code isn't there. The WCF Stock Portfolio sample also has code based templating (simply using a hidden DOM element) which is not all that different. It could be redone with jTemplates pretty easily as well.
