Here is the latest in my link-listing series.  Also check out my ASP.NET Tips, Tricks and Tutorials page and Silverlight Tutorials page for links to popular articles I’ve done myself in the past.


  • Best Practices for Creating ASP.NET websites with IIS 6.0: Omar Al Zabir, author of the excellent Building a Web 2.0 Portal with ASP.NET 3.5 book, has a great article that details best practices to follow when setting up a site on IIS 6.0.  Definitely worth reading and book-marking.

  • ASP.NET Dynamic Data Videos using VB: Bill Burrows has put together an awesome series of videos that show off how to use the new ASP.NET Dynamic Data support provided in .NET 3.5 SP1.  You can find more links to ASP.NET Dynamic Data tutorials in my last link post here.

  • Routing with WebForms: Wally McClure has a nice podcast that describes how to use the new ASP.NET routing infrastructure in .NET 3.5 SP1 with Web Forms based pages.  A lot of people mistakenly think this feature only works with ASP.NET MVC applications – when in reality it also works with web forms pages (in fact all ASP.NET Dynamic Data sites use it).

  • ASP.NET Continuous Integration and Deployment using CruiseControl.NET, Subversion, MSBuild and Robocopy: Omar Al Zabir has another great article – this time on implementing continuous integration with ASP.NET.

ASP.NET AJAX and jQuery

  • An Introduction to jQuery (Part 1): Rick Strahl has posted an excellent article that introduces jQuery, and walks-through how to take advantage of it within ASP.NET pages.

  • New AJAX Support for Data-Driven Web Apps: Bertrand Le Roy has written a great MSDN article that describes some of the new ASP.NET AJAX features available in preview form today.  Also check out his blog posts here and here to learn more about how the new client-side data templating feature support.

  • Using jQuery to enhance ASP.NET AJAX progress indication: Dave Ward has a cool article that describes how to integrate jQuery functionality with the ASP.NET AJAX UpdatePanel control to enable better progress indication status.

  • ASP.NET AJAX: Enabling Bookmarking and the Browser’s Back Button: Scott Mitchell continues his excellent series on ASP.NET AJAX and discusses how to add history points to an AJAX-enabled web page so that visitors can bookmark it, as well as to enable back/forward browser navigation.  This is a new feature added to ASP.NET in .NET 3.5 SP1.
