Expression Web 2 Webcast June 5th – What do you want to know?

Building Compelling Websites on the Microsoft Platform

I’m doing an Innovation Briefing Webcast about Expression Web 2 for Microsoft this coming Thursday at 11am Pacific Time. Hit the link below to sign up to join in. I don’t know if there’s still more spots for registration but if not, the entire one hour session will be recorded and published in wmv format for download and streaming.

I’m meeting with the Expression Web dev team on the Tuesday before and I haven’t really nailed down what to present at the webcast so if you have any questions or want to see a demo of a specific function or anything like that, please drop me a line and I’ll work it in.

Before you ask: No, I don’t work for Microsoft.

I really enjoyed the webcast, and I’m looking around for some good tutorials about using EXW2 with WordPress. I’ve long since relied on WordPress as a great tool for building fast dynamic websites. The only drawback has been the time it takes to do layout by hand… and now that I have found EXW2 I think that just got a lot easier!

My concern, like many others, has been validation… and from what I could tell EXW2 looks very robust for that. It seems to autogen code the way I would write it… much like the standards you would find on or something like that…

Thanks again for the work and I look forward to hearing back from you about anything going on. Also… good luck with the book!!! I’ll definitely be picking up a copy!!!

Kind Regards,
Scott Leonard

Hi Scott

Once I’m done with the book (scheduled for completion the 30th of June) I’ll be starting a series of tutorials and articles on how to convert a site designed in Expression Web 2 to a WordPress theme. It’ll be a lengthy writing process and I’m looking for all the input I can get so if you have anything you want to ad, questions, suggestions or even articles feel free to contact me at any time. Everything I do is “work in progress” and there’s always room for improvement.

Just a side note on validation:
The last WordPress blog I built validates 100% but it takes a bit of time to make that happen primarily because WordPress doesn’t demand that you insert alt titles for your images etc. but it is possible.
