Final Exam Draft – Accessability

I’m about to sit the final exam of my university degree this afternoon. It is for a unit called Internet Technologies, and I have to write two essays – “Pretend you are writing two articles for a technical magazine. You cannot select the topic you covered in your talk or project”. The list of topics are:

  1. C#
  2. ASP.NET
  3. Advanced ASP.NET: UserControls
  4. SQL Server 2005 & ADO.NET
  5. Handling session information in a ASP.NET application
  6. Security. Authorization and authentication in ASP.NET, .NET Framework and C#
  7. Design Patterns
  8. Intro to source code control & Use of CVS
  9. Intro to issue and bug tracking. Use of Issue/Bug Tracking software
  10. Open Source: The impact on corporate development practices
  11. Introduction to SOAP & Web Services
  12. XHTML and CSS2
  13. XML and XSLT
  14. LDAP and DirectoryServices in .NET
  15. Refactoring
  16. Agile processes & Extreme Programming
  17. Advanced C#: New features
  18. Team Foundation Server: Collaborative Development Environments
  19. .NET Compact Framework: Developing for PDAs and Phones
  20. C# and MS.NET vs Java J2EE: Pros and Cons
  21. Developing for Accessibility
  22. HCI Issues in web applications

Since my talk was on Design Patterns and my project was on Web Services, I have selected Developing for Accessibility and XML and XSLT. Since I have a pretty bad case of the flu, I thought I might draft them here first to try and coerce my brain into a thinking mode again. Wish me luck :)


  1. "XML and XSLT"

    At last! Some decent topics on your website :P

    Only joking - comeon post it already you have an audience member waiting with bated breath.

  2. With the amount of pain killers I was on, I would be interested in reading what I wrote :)

    I actually ended up doing Source Control instead of accessibility (based heavily on my deployment blog entry)

    My XML/XSLT was pretty similar to the particle tree article, but I have though about it a little more now, and I have some notes which I might post once I feel more human...
