Right click “Save as…”

In this session, Damian Edwards will share his experiences from building Australia's largest e-commerce site with ASP.NET Web Forms. They'll show you how to be a good web citizen by covering standards compliance (properly!), cross browser and accessibility considerations, non-JavaScript support, as well as coding techniques like the Model-View-Presenter pattern to improve maintainability and testing. Along the way, there'll be plenty of discussion of the differences between Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC in each area, as well as an early peek at some of the new features coming in ASP.NET 4.0 and VS 2010. Following this Andrew Tokeley will show you how it is possible to build highly accessible web applications by leveraging the accessibility features of Silverlight and discusses using Silverlight under the New Zealand e-Government Web Guidelines.
