ADO.NET Data Services Framework – aka Project Astoria: REST data services for the Web Pablo Castro, TECHNICAL LEAD, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast The new wave of Web applications are built on technologies such as AJAX and Microsoft Silverlight, which enable developers to build better, richer user experiences. These technologies bring a shift in how applications are organized, including a stronger separation of presentation from data. The goal of the ADO.NET Data Services Framework (aka "Project Astoria") is to enable applications to expose data as a data service that can be consumed by Web clients within a corporate network and across the Internet. Data services are reachable over HTTP, and URIs are used to identify the various pieces of information. Interactions with the data service happen in terms of well established and broadly adopted formats such as JSON and protocols such as the Atom Publishing Protocol.
Building Composite WPF Applications Using Project Codename – Prism Glenn Block, TECHNICAL PRODUCT PLANNER, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast The patterns & practices Smart Client Software Factory includes a set of assets for developing composite smart client applications in Win forms. With the release of Windows Presentation Foundation customers are now finding they have similar needs around WPF. The “Acropolis” incubation project which was perceived as the answer has now been folded into a future platform release. So where does this leave customers that are adopting WPF today? Come to this session and find out about the new CodeName “Prism” project that we (patterns & practices) are developing jointly with the UIFX team. Using “Prism” you’ll be able to develop composite applications that leverage the full power of WPF. We’re also investing a lot of effort to improve the adoption experience, including giving you more flexibility around how our assets are consumed. This includes making them play better with your existing infrastructure and frameworks and giving your more choices as to what you use and don’t use. Come to this session and we’ll take a dive into “Prism” and see how it can help you with your future WPF composite application solutions.
Building Rich Internet Applications with ASP.NET AJAX and Web Client Software Factory 2.0 Glenn Block, TECHNICAL PRODUCT PLANNER, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast The Web Client Software Factory is a set of guidance for building Composite Web Solutions. Often, however these solutions offer a less than productive user experience due to the limitations of working in the browser. In WCSF 1.0 the focus was on dynamically discovering and composing a set of loosely coupled components at runtime. In the next release of WCSF based on customer feedback, we've continued down this path and further extended this focus to building Rich Internet Applications using ASP.NET AJAX. This includes a host of new capabilities that build upon and extend ASP.NET AJAX, as well as core enhancements to CWAB for supporting composite UIs. We've also heard a lot of customers asking us to make working with and evaluating the factory assets simpler. We've have responded by breaking up the factory into a set of smaller "bundles" that give developers more options as to how they consume the assets. Come to this session and we'll talk about the new capabilities as well as the new different ways we are delivering our guidance. We'll also touch on our plans for supporting MVC.
Consuming and Creating RESTful Web Services with .NET Ron Jacobs, Technical Evangelist, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast If you are past the debates and religious wars about REST vs. SOAP and ready to do something that actually matters, in this session we will focus on how you can consume and create RESTful web services. Services that would make even the toughest RESTafaraian smile. You can do it with .NET and I will show you how
Go Gold with Silverlight 2.0 Laurence Moroney, SR TECH EVANGELIST, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast Silverlight is a next generation technology aimed at driving cutting edge user experiences to the browser. It is architected so that it can be used seamlessly with server technologies to provide a presentation tier for nTier applications. In this session, Laurence Moroney, Microsoft will present how to build an nTier application including SQL Server on the back end, ASP.NET in the business logic tier and a Silverlight front end. In addition, Laurence will present how other middle tier technologies such as PHP or Java may be used with Silverlight
Hyper-V Architecture and Scenarios with Demos Allen Stewart, PRINCIPAL PROGRAM MANAGER, Microsoft
WMV Webcast This session will provide a deep dive into the architecture of Hyper-V: Windows Server 2008 hypervisor layer. The session will then introduce the audience to an all up view of the different scenarios enabled by server virtualization and virtualization management. In this session we will review the following concepts: o Enabling Hyper-V o VSP/VSC o Server core (demo) o Parent partition o New VM Resource limits o Networking o Clustering
Implementing Workflow Enabled Services and Durable Services using .NET Framework 3.5 Matthew Winkler, SENIOR PROGRAM MANAGER, Microsoft PPT

Inside .NET Framework 3.5, there is new functionality allowing Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services to be built and consumed from a Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) workflow. This session will introduce the feature, discussing motivation, scenarios, and reasons for using this feature, an architectural overview and demos moving from a simple service written as a workflow to a complex scenario with many workflows communicating with each other. Additionally, the ability to execute workflows as a service requires the WCF runtime to be aware of durable instances, that is, the state of a given service. This talk will also highlight the ability to durably store the state of a WCF service written in imperative code.
Introduction to F# Luke Hoban, PROGRAM MANAGER II, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast F# is a typed functional programming language for the .NET Framework.  It combines the succinctness, expressivity, and compositionality of typed functional programming with the runtime support, libraries, interoperability, tools, and object model of .NET.  This session will introduce the F# language, library and tools.
Introduction to the ADO.NET Entity Framework Pablo Castro, TECHNICAL LEAD, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast Most .NET database applications out there use ADO.NET to access and manipulate data, and most of them have a data-access layer built on top of ADO.NET to abstract out many of the details related to data-access that can get in the way of business logic. In this session we’ll introduce the ADO.NET Entity Framework, a high-level data library that pushes up the level of abstraction application developers need to work at when dealing with data in databases. We’ll discuss how the system supports conceptual modeling, the use of the object services layer to do object-relational mapping, and how great integration with LINQ (language-integrated query) brings new levels of productivity to the data-access development space.
Making Your Phones Ring With Software + Services Tim Stevens, Developer Program Evangelist, British Telecom PPT WMV Webcast The Software plus Services (S+S) architectural approach marks the next wave of innovation in computer software. It’s all about weaving together on-site software and Internet-based services to create a new generation of rich, integrated, powerful software solutions; solutions which would have been hard, if not unfeasible, to build in the past. Whether you’re developing new-media consumer applications, or mission-critical enterprise systems, S+S is in your future. Luck prefers the prepared, so come to our session and learn all about this new way of writing software. In this session we will eradicate the Tyranny of Or, survey several practical uses of S+S, show how to use cloud services to enable new software scenarios, and even use hosted services from British Telecom to make your cell phones ring and demonstrate how cloud services can bridge the world of computer networks and the worlds of voice communication and SMS.
Putting The User Back Into Architecture Christof Sprenger, Architect Evangelist at the Architecture Strategy Team at Microsoft., microsoft PPT WMV Webcast For the past few years Architecture in the IT industry has largely focused on data centers, back end systems and services. While it is important to get these operational items right, none of them have ever closed a deal, made an important business decision, or created a new market. As these IT architectures mature, it is time to return the focus of architecture to where it can have the biggest impact and greatest value for the business: the user. The user, whether it be the CEO, middle manager or shop floor worker, has the ability to impact business in both positive and negative ways every day with every decision. Sessions in this track will present a variety of new ways of thinking about User Experience as it relates to Architecture.
Scale out your applications with Windows Communication Foundation and Windows HPC Server 2008 Asli Bilgin, NET DEVELOPER EVANGELIST, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast Learn how Windows HPC Server 2008 enables you to build high performance applications with Visual Studio 2008. In this session, we will show you how you can benchmark your WCF applications and improve their performance and reliability by spreading workloads across multiple compute nodes.
Sharing Assets Between the .NET Compact Framework and the .NET Framework Daniel Moth, Developer Evangelist, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast Whether you were first introduced to .NET via the .NET Compact Framework in Windows Mobile or via the full .NET Framework on the PC, it may make sense to share your code assets between the two platforms. In this session we will explore when you should be doing this and when not. We will then explore the options available (e.g. directly sharing binaries or conditional compilation) and drill into problems and workarounds. This will include framework differences, platform / OS differences, optimal usage of Visual Studio 2005 (and Visual Studio 2008) and how things have improved since .NET Compact Framework 1.0 and 2.0 (going towards v3.5).
SOA, S+S, and Microsoft: A Perspective David Chappell, CEO, Chappell & Associates PPT WMV Webcast Service-oriented architecture (SOA) has become a mainstream idea. At the same time, larger concepts like software + services (S+S) are emerging. What do these changes mean for organizations? And how is the Microsoft application platform adapting to these ideas? This session offers a perspective on these questions, examining the real benefits of SOA, the promise of S+S, and the impact on how organizations buy, create, and use software.
SOAP/WS-* and REST: Complementary Communication Styles David Chappell, CEO, Chappell & Associates PPT WMV Webcast Two approaches to creating Web services are most visible today. One, using SOAP and the WS-* specifications, follows in the footsteps of earlier distributed computing technologies. The other, the RESTful style, is explicitly based on the principles of the Web itself. Both have value, and going forward, both will certainly be used. This presentation describes these two approaches, looks at when each one makes sense, and shows how Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) can support applications built using either style.
The New Windows Threadpool Dave Probert, PRINCIPAL ARCHITECT, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast The Windows Threadpool was introduced in Windows 2000 and is now widely used, particularly by services to lower the overhead of thread operations. Yet the original interfaces and implementation made it difficult to use successfully. In Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 a new threadpool interface and implementation is provided which is simpler and easier to use correctly, while providing better performance and facilities for more robust programming. In this presentation we will look at the new threadpool, give some examples of the problems which have been addressed, the design rationale, and dive into the implementation details and kernel-level mechanisms it relies on (such as the use of completion ports to manage concurrency).
The Perfect Pattern Storm, when TDD meets UX and MVP Ron Jacobs, Technical Evangelist, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast
Understanding Software + Services David Chappell, CEO, Chappell & Associates
WMV Webcast The move to service-orientation is well underway, both inside enterprises and on the Internet. What role does traditional software play in a world of on-line services? In particular, how is Microsoft approaching the combination of software plus services? This session provides an overview of this area, giving an introduction to and a perspective on this emerging combination.
Windows Server 2008 Kernel Architecture Dave Probert, PRINCIPAL ARCHITECT, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast This session goes beneath the surface to explore the new features and enhancements in the Windows Server 2008 operating system to improve security, scalability and reliability. Learn about cycle-based scheduling, hot-plug CPU and memory support, self-healing NTFS, I/O priorities, kernel transaction manager, service security improvements, Address Space Load Randomization, and more.
Windows Server 2008 Overview Justin Graham , SR. TECHNICAL PRODUCT MANAGER, Microsoft
WMV Webcast Windows Server 2008, in addition to incorporating new capabilities and enhancements to existing features, includes a number of improvements in the core OS that enhance the Operating System’s capabilities in this area. Features aimed at increasing the ability of Windows Server 2008 to support highly critical workloads by improving operational reliability, reducing system failures, and easing management. We will also discuss improvements in other related elements in the platform that help Windows based systems and services help move an organization's IT Department forward.
Windows Vista for Managed Developers: Besides .NET Framework 3.x Daniel Moth, Developer Evangelist, Microsoft PPT WMV Webcast There are many new native C/C++ APIs (obviously not part of the .NET Framework) in Windows Vista. In this talk you will discover how you (a C# or Visual Basic developer using Visual Studio 2008 or 2005) can take advantage of this new functionality. This demo-driven session, will teach you how to make your application feel like a real extension to the Windows Vista platform (and not like a ported application that just runs on it). Vista-only features covered include Windows Error Reporting enhancements, Restart API, Recovery APIs, Restart Manager, writing managed preview handlers and conforming to User Account Control (UAC). As a bonus, these features are also available in Windows Server 2008.
