Fahad, Director Engineering Folio3, for taking out time and delivering a fantastic show on jQuery with ASP.NET.

FahadThe event started by Fahad with the current trends in web and how the user experience has changed over the internet. Fahad talked about the current tools and libraries available in the market such as Silverlight/Flash along with some client side scripting using jQuery, YUI etc.

The overall emphasis of the session was to use jQuery with ASP.NET in order to build rich and interactive user experience.


The speaker demonstrates some of the simple usage of jQuery like dialog window, Calendar control, Drag gable Panel and how we can utilize jQuery and CSS with ASP.NET server controls or simple HTML controls.
