Great summary of the new features, guys. You pulled out the absolute best stuff about ASP.NET 4 in 20 minutes that we crammed into almost 2000 pages in ASP.NET 4 Unleashed. Devs who haven't upgraded yet will definitely find this show useful. Nice job!

Thanks Nate. We thought Peter would give some great insights into the new valuable features of ASP.NET 4.0. We are glad you enjoyed it and thought so much to post your comments.

Pretty good talk. But, I kind of thought that this was almost too high level and some of the things he noted, you actually had access too in 3.5. I mean, while table-less controls and cleaner HTML is baked into 4.0, but there have been CSS based controls at least since 2.0.

It would be awesome if you guys could have a talk with someone on "What Features of C# 4.0 Every Developer Should Know". There are a lot of changes there, in terms of overloads and the new dynamic variable capabilities.

Just suggestin'.
