There was a lot of developers unhappy with the content at the recent VS 2010 launch and as a result of that Paul Fallon is coming to Cork on 1st June to do a two hour talk/overview/briefing on the core .NET Framework and VS 2010 changes.  

Paul will be covering ASP.NET 4.0, WCF, Entity Framework, Parallel Extensions and Windows Workflow 4.0

I am not sure how he will fit it all in but rest assured it will be worthwhile attending. Attendance is free and you can register here

ASP.NET 4.0 - Menu Rendering Problem - controlRenderingCompatibilityVersion

 I really like the way the menu control in ASP.NET 4.0 renders and having upgraded an existing site in Visual Studio  2010 I was confused for a while as to why it was not rendering as I expected. Having checked I was using the new stylesheet I discovered when I viewed the html source that the upgraded site was rendering the menu as a table  whilst 4.0 was rendering it as a list.
