i just became aware of this...know nothing about it, but conceptually it sounds cool.

i’m guessing it uses “unsupported” methods for doing some of the work though (i.e., direct db access)

from their site:

Would you like to write code faster with fewer errors?  Tired of manually typing repetitive blocks of code?  Do you wish there was an easier way to enforce coding guidelines or implement design patterns?  This presentation shows how Code Snippets in Visual Studio 2005 can solve many day-to-day developer woes.  First we explore what snippets already exist.  Then we tackle how to create or own snippets, and how to use the new Code Snippet manager.

Using the features of GDI+, it is easy to generate GIF, PNG, and JPG images on-the-fly in ASP.NET.  The first part of the meeting will showcase simple charts and other graphics rendered with the standard web-safe color palette.  We will examine strengths and limitations of the various available image formats.  In the second half, we get down and dirty with the raw bitmap data itself for more advanced rendering.  C# is used throughout.  Come on out and let's have a great time changing the world, one image at a time!
