Interested in creating cutting-edge websites (and even games for the Xbox 360?), using best-in-class tools and technologies, on a low low budget of exactly nothing? Come see what's new for developers from Microsoft in this highly interactive session. After a broad look at what's available, we'll test-drive ASP.NET "Atlas", Microsoft's powerful new framework for building rich, cross-browser, cross-platform AJAX applications. We'll see how "Atlas" makes it possible to easily take advantage of AJAX techniques on the Web and create pages with a rich, responsive UI and server communication. You'll leave with pointers to all the free resources you need to get started learning and coding with the latest developer tools from Microsoft.

In his previous life, he was a researcher in the MindGames group at Dublin's Media Lab Europe, where he was architect and lead developer of a .NET application called Symphony, which was used for everything from a brain-computer interface to performance art pieces
