From his last weblog post
” I spent last 5 months writing and even teaching Atlas stuff. The final result is a book for Microsoft Press, due out in November. The title is “Introducing ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions“. Yes, we’ve been lucky (just lucky, trust me) to ship to printers late enough to rework the cover and even remove a few occurrences of the now meaningless word “Atlas” throughout the text.
The book covers all key (and hot) topics of Atlas, including Web Services and remote procedure calls, client-side data binding, Web Service bridging, gadgets, UpdatePanel and partial rendering. Source code and text are as up-to-date as humanly possible. Readers, though, will receive online updates should the text in the book prove clearly outdated sometime soon.
Check it out, and don’t hesitate to ask questions if you have some. The TOC is below:
- Building Blocks of Ajax-style Web Applications
- Building Blocks of the Atlas Application Framework
- Updatable Page Fragments
- Atlas Control Toolbox & Behaviors
- The Atlas Client Library
- Web Services
- Client-side Data Binding
- Atlas Gadgets
