Special Report from VSLive! Boston

Here we offer coverage of VSLive, which recently came to Boston and covered topics like ASP.NET application security and improving smart client app performance.

VSLive! Boston, a FTP Conference, recently wrapped up a four-day stint in Boston. The show offered two tracks -- smart client development and ASP.NET Web development. In this report SearchVB.com highlights what the experts were saying about improving application performance and properly securing Web apps.

  Keynote: The past, present and future of data access

  • .NET data access presents opportunities, challenges

  • Rockford Lhotka highlights Microsoft's upcoming Language Integrated Query and offered hints for confronting changes to ADO.NET.

  ASP.NET Track

  • Membership and security in ASP.NET apps

  • The ASP.NET track at the recent VSLive show offered developers much advice on keeping malicious users out of their Web applications. This work extends beyond preventive code to encompass testing, detection and management.

  • ASP.NET AJAX extensions employ JSON serializer (TheServerSide.NET)

  • Among useful traits in ASP.NET AJAX Extensions (formerly Atlas) and the associated tool kit are improved Web service proxy handling and JSON-based serialization, PluralSight's Fritz Onion said at VSLive 2006 in Boston.

  Smart Client Track

  • Getting the most out of smart client apps

  • Performance is everything, and though there is no silver bullet for making an application go faster, there are many best practices for improving performance.
