Provider Model Information Out the Wazoo
Earlier I blogged about my 122-page long GridView tutorial on MSDN, titling that entry GridView Examples Out the Wazoo. Today, while writing my latest 4Guys article - A Look at ASP.NET 2.0's Provider Model - I stumbled across Kent Sharkey's latest blog entry, The Provider Manifesto, which has links to over 120-pages of provider information available online at MSDN.
The Introduction to the Provider Model serves as a good starting place, and is followed by more focused articles on working with the various 2.0 providers:
There's also the official Provider Toolkit homepage on MSDN where, I imagine, links to these articles will appear soon. And of course there's my most recent offerring (the 4Guys article), but, sadly, it is about 118 pages shorter than Microsoft's output. (I also have a PowerPoint presentation on some of the new ASP.NET 2.0 features, which includes a look at the provider model; this talk was presented at the .NET 2.0 University day-long lecture that was hosted back in September.)
