Central Maryland Association of .net Professionals - March Meeting

From my friends at CMAP:

Central Maryland Association of  .NET Professionals
Tuesday, March 7th 2006
6:30 PM
UMBC Technology Center
1450 South Rolling Road
Halethorpe, MD 21227
Main Topic
Ajax: Integrating the Client with the Server
Eric Pascarello

What are we going to learn about Ajax at the next CMAP meeting? How to use it to get our dishes sparkling clean? No. How great a warrior he was in Greek mythology? No. How to use it to make our ASP.NET applications more responsive? Yes! Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript And XML) might be just the thing you need to tune-up that clunky website. Eric Pascarello, co-author of Ajax in Action and a moderator at JavaRanch.com, will demonstrate the use of the XMLHttpRequest object for more effective browser/server interaction, and will build a dynamic control designed to enhance the user experience. Do not miss this opportunity to see the next big thing in web development.

I am looking forward to seeing you for an evening of networking, pizza, refreshments, and valuable raffle and door prizes. All first time members, and those that bring a first time member, receive a free raffle ticket.
