The AJAX talk will address some of the options available for implementing AJAX applications with .NET. During the demo portion of the the talk, the presenter will show how how to build an AJAX application from scratch, and also how to upgrade an existing application to utilize the new web extensions library that is part of the .NET Framework 3.5.

C# 3.0 will be the topic of the second presentation, which will cover automatic properties, object and collection initializers, extension methods, anonymous types and lambda expressions, including the applications in Linq.
