First, thanks to everyone who attended my talks this week at TechEd EMEA 2008 Developer in Barcelona, Spain. If you haven't submitted an evaluation, please do so! Not only do you have a chance to win the cool phone, but it helps the conference organizers and me as well.
In my sessions I demonstrated a few things that I wanted to share in this post as some folks were trying to quickly take pictures or write done some command line stuff I did. I got a lot of questions about the sample site I showed in my two breakout sessions: Adventure Works Travel. I can't share the code for this right now, but it will be available by the end of the year. It's got a ton of cool demoware stuff like a Silverlight control as well as a WCF service hosted within the the SharePoint site that's called by the Silverlight control. Also demonstrates dual authentication with anonymous access and FBA. Cool site... but you'll be able to download the project & source code to deploy in your own virtual machines soon enough... I'll certainly be blogging about it when its available.
OFC202 - MOSS 2007 as Web Content Management for Internet-Facing Web SitesThe "code" for this session is related to the Content Query Web Part (I can't share the code from Adventure Works just yet). I've posted a ZIP of the Web Part definition that includes the customizations as well as the custom XSLT file... each includes XML comments where changes were made. Check the readme in the ZIP for instructions on duplication of the process.
The other thing I promised was to share the IIS HTTP compression stuff... I've blogged about this in a separate blog post here.
