Ken Schaefer (IIS MVP) and Chewy Chong used to work together back in Australia.  Ken was in Singapore briefly before flying to TechEd Asia 2006 and dropped by the office to say hello.   Chewy couldn’t resist the opportunity to pick Ken's brains on IIS 7 and sharing it with Singapore before he left.

In this video, Ken and Chewy Chong discuss some key new features of IIS 7:

   - IIS 7 shipping with Vista and Longhorn
   - Reduced attack surface by running absolutely only what you need with IIS7 components
   - Overriding / extending built in IIS functionality with managed code (no more C++ / ISAPI)
   - The IIS 7 pipeline and extending it with managed code
   - IIS configuration… goodbye metabase, hello ASP.NET style configs
   - Easier IIS remote configuration (.NET hoster nirvana maybe?)

The video’s got a number of demos and whiteboard drawings. 
You can find out more about Ken and the great stuff he’s working on (including an IIS 7 book) on his blog:  http://adopenstatic.com/cs/blogs/ken hit counter

      This video is too dimmed.

      Thanks for the feedback Anonieko. 

      Just so you know, I went to IKEA last week and purchased a few lamps to make the Singapore MS Innovation Center (that room this video was filmed in) brighter and better for filming.

      Fantastic stuff.

      I really like the unified pipeline - I can think of several examples of when this would have been really useful in projects I've worked on in the past.

      The mix of screen capture and video presentation is nice too - job well done! Wink
