My Ajax and ASP.NET “Atlas” Presentation

At work today, I gave a 40 minute presentation on Ajax, ASP.NET “Atlas,” and what we can do to prepare ourselves for the changing world of web development. I presented the talk in MindManager, which actually has a spiffy Presentation Mode, and wanted to make it available to anyone else. So, click the link below to get my MindMap presentation on Ajax and ASP.NET “Atlas.” The license on the map is the same as this blog: Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.5, so feel free to pass the map around, post it on your site, or link back to me. And if you have any comments or criticisms on my presentation or interpretation of the facts, feel free to post them here. I’ll be the first to admit that it (the presentation) and I (Brandon Satrom) are far from perfect. Enjoy! Building AJAX Applications using ASP.NET “Atlas” MindMap (460 kb) If you’re new to MindManager, you’ve got a couple of options for consuming this map. You can download the viewer here or you can use the browser plug-in, which can be found here. Ajax, ASP.NET “Atlas”, Web2.0 Update: If you’re using IE, you’ll notice that your browser will tell you that this Map file is actually a .zip. It’s just not true, but IE seems to be confused. If you “Save As…” and rename the extension from “.zip” to “.mmap,” the Map should open just fine. Sorry for any confusion…

    Great map!! I don’t know how long you have been using MindManager, but that is one of the nicer maps I’ve seen: great use of images, great information (but not too much information!!), and nice use of hyperlinking–plus you demoed it in presentation mode.

    What kind of feedback did you get from your audience?
    Thanks

    Hi Hobart,

    Thanks so much for the great comment! That really means a lot coming from you guys at Mindjet. I’ve only been using MindManager for about 3 months now, but it has completely changed the way I work! Keep up the great work over there!

    The feedback I got in the presentation was fantastic. It was only my second time to run a presentation totally from MM, and the biggest by far, but everyone seemed to respond very well to it.

    MindManager is really catching on at my company and I’m doing everything I can to let people know about the tool and how powerful it can be.

    Thanks again Hobart! Drop me an email some time, I’d love to get some tips from the source on the tool!

    Any chance you can save it in a more universal format? Unfortunately I do not have admin privs at work to be able to download the mmap viewer :( and I run Macs at home.

    Hey Rob,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll work on creating an HTML version of this map and load it up here.

    I have an application with ATLAS and I can’t view the forms, because the license isn’t there. Where can I get it now that everything switched to ajax?
