Build Google IG like Ajax Start Page in 7 days using ASP.NET Ajax and .NET 3.0

“Omar AL Zabir” the name in .NET domain is always shaking us with lot of new cool ideas. recently our Misho bhai (his nick name) introduced us with a creature of his healthy brain. it was “Building Google IG like Ajax…stuff with in 7 days…”.

Man, you really made it great surprise for 2007 !!!. , hi readers don’t you belief me right? just read the following introduction and click over here to continue the rest of the article ….

I will show you how I built a start page similar to Google IG in 7 nights using ASP.Net Ajax, .NET 3.0, Linq, DLinq and XLinq. I have logged my day to day development experience in this article and documented all the technical challenges, interesting discoveries and important design & architectural decisions. You will find the implementation quite close to actual Google IG. It has drag & drop enabled widgets, complete personalization of the pages, multi page feature and so on. It’s not just a prototype or a sample project. It’s a real living and breathing open source start page running at which you can use everyday. You are welcome to participate in the development and make widgets for the project.


This is only true for this guy who can bet any ajax start page… 😀

Shameless disclaimer: I (Omar AL Zabir) am co-founder & CTO of Pageflakes, the coolest Web 2.0 Ajax Start Page. I like building Ajax websites and I am really, really good at it.
