I just got word earlier today that I got in to do a talk at the PhillyDotNet CodeCamp 2008.1.  It is going to be @ DeVry university instead of the standard Microsoft Malvern office.  This should will allow more people to attend as well as more talks!

Right now my talk is going to be on Incorporating AJAX into Sharepoint.  In my last talk I briefly demo'd a small AJAX enabled webpart within Sharepoint to show how easy it was to incorporate into Sharepoint.  I'm planning on expanding this out and showing more useful examples that people can use in existing sites.

I'll post more as I prepare for the event.

If your in the Delaware Valley area and want to share some knowledge I encourage you to sign up and do a talk!  Check out the PhillyDotNet site and contact them if your interested!

I've been awaiting the release of the ASP.NET MVC framework for a few weeks now since hearing about it.  In a previous blog post of mine I listed some of the great .NET community talent that Microsoft has recruited to work on it. 

The CTP was SUPPOSED to be released Dec 7th, but due to some last minute bugs they have decided to delay it.  The good news is that it won't be delayed TOO long.  Should be released sometime next week.  Frankly, I have so much going on right now that even if it was released friday I wouldn't have had a chance to do anything with it for a few weeks :-(

In the mean time, I've compiled a list of some of great postings/tutorials with the new MVC framework.

Scott Gu's postings (Great info here)
ASP.NET MVC Framework (Part 1)
ASP.NET MVC Framework (Part 2): URL Routing
ASP.NET MVC Framework (Part 3): Passing ViewData from Controllers to Views
ASP.NET MVC Framework (Part 4): Handling Form Edit and Post Scenarios

Phil Haack

Just an FYI incase your like me and can't keep all the acronyms straight
