Announcing the upcoming Web Development SIG Meetings. I have given you the next two meeting topics, and a note on a change from our typical date for January. I hope to see you all at these meetings!
Website Usability 11/15/2008 (3rd Saturday) At our November meeting, we will be looking at usability in the context of e-commerce websites. Aaron Rosenberg, User Experience Analyst at American Greetings, will start with a brief introduction of User Experience and how it fits into the development process. He will then speak specifically with regard to tracking and understanding user needs and building them into the design of websites.
.Net's Membership and Role Providers 12/20/2008 (3rd Saturday) We started 2008 at our January meeting by learning a Simple ASP.NET Password process. Now, for our December 20, 2008, meeting we will end the year by learning about a more sophisticated .Net authentication system.
.Net Membership and Role Provider classes are Microsoft's built-in classes for managing user authentication and role management. We will see a demonstration of how to use the wizard which sets up the system, including building a SQL database for membership and creating password management code. We will also learn about setting up custom membership and role manager to work with our existing Active Directory Authentication and database roles. The demonstration will include how to use roles to hide or show menu items as well as control page access.
TBA - Saturday, 1/24/2009 - PLEASE NOTE DATE: We will be meeting the fourth Saturday (January 24th) at our normal location
We are already developing a list of topic ideas for the new year, and our always looking for more good ideas. If you have a topic you want to present or see in 2009, please email Frank Mitch and me off-group. Thanks.
