Shervin also servers as the Florida rep for INETA


Shervin informs us that he has installed the latest VS2005 beta and is doing projects but has still been able to use VS2003 to keep existing projects up to date and customers happy. Brave man!!


This presentation is a preview for the Tampa Code Camp coming up this Saturday, July 16th in Tampa. Shervin along with our many other great speakers, mostly from Florida but a few from other places in the south.


Showed the login control and some of the new features of VS2005 and in the construction of some web part controls.


Webparts are an integral part of Sharepoint but are really a separate technology. With VS2003 there is an sdk that you can use to do webparts without sharepoint. In VS2005 webparts are built in and you can make them part of any project.


There was a discussion of if these webparts work with the Firefox, it does work fine, I just tried it on the CodeZone site. As to how it saves the configuration I'm a little less clear.


Well… I have to go do the raffle. Will add a link to Shervin's presentation once he posts it after code camp this weekend.
