One of the three talks I am doing at ASP.NET Connections is What’s new in the BCL 2.0 for ASP.NET Developers (that’s an abbreviation of the title).
I am taking my “What’s New in the Whidbey Base Class Libraries” presentation that I have been doing since February and turning it on its’ ear a little bit. I thought of doing this because I had a conversation with an ASP.NET guru who was giving me grief for focusing on the BCL so much this winter. “Dude!,” said I, ” System.Web.NUTHIN’ don’t WORK without the BCL!”
So while many ASP.NET developers are spending their time focusing on the cool personalization and caching functionality in ASP.NET 2.0 or the ability to drag & drop your way to a website, I am going to try to call their attention to some key goo in the BCL that will help them write better code and write it more simply.
