Andrew Hay
Andrew Hay is a developer, speaker and author with 15 years of industry experience. Andrew started his career programming in Assembly language on a IBM OS/360 Mainframe computer in Chicago and leapt into the online experience in the late 90’s. Over the past five years at Pop Art, Inc, Andrew has been a champion of adding visibility into complex business processes. As Director of Software Development, he specializes in ASP.Net and its adjacent technologies including AJAX and Silverlight. Andrew earned a B.S. in Computer Science from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois.


Dynamic Data
ASP.Net Dynamic Data is a new feature in the Microsoft .Net 3.5 SP1 release. Dynamic Data extends the data models expressed through LINQ to SQL and the Entity Framework into a template-based website in seconds.

In this presentation, I'll start at File, New Project and cruise into how the System.Web.Routing namespace works. The Routing stack has crossed the boundary of the .Net MVC Framework and is finding niches in other technologies like Dynamic Data. From there, I'll tour the data driven site using standard display and edit controls for a variety of data types. Finally, I'll show how to implement specific behaviors, business logic and 3rd party controls that adhere to DRY principle.
