Comments
from the
Editor
==========================================================


This week’s editorial will be short. It seems that there were a variety of
conferences this week to attend. As such I skipped out of the office and over to
Redmond for the Microsoft Office Developer Conference. I look forward to seeing
what Bill Gates has to say tomorrow in the keynote and to learning what new
things are happening with Office development.


In the mean time, look for our second video to post this week. Bill Hatfield
will be presenting, “ASP.NET Does AJAX”.In this first of several videos on the
topic of Atlas, Bill will show you how to create a dynamic dropdown list using
AJAX and ASP.NET.

Until next week…


Brad!
