Microsoft Developer Update

First, we will do a survey of the set of just-released products and how they impact developers.  See what’s new in Windows Server 2008:  Hypervisor Technology, IIS7, and others.  SQL 2008 is also packed with goodies for Developers;  see the geospatial capabilities as well as the LINQ enhancements. Don’t forget the myriad enhancements that come with the .Net Framework 3.5!


REST with WCF, ADO.NET Data Services, and ASP.NET MVC

The evolution of the web has seen many changes in patterns and standards for working with services. In a world of AJAX and other lightweight clients, not all services need to be implemented with the bells and whistles that SOAP and its many specifications allow for. And not all services need to be “transport-neutral”. An alternative architectural approach known as REST is well-suited for many web-based scenarios. You can implement a RESTful architecture using a variety of current and future Microsoft technologies. But how do you decide which ones are the best choices for your scenarios? These sessions of technical deep dives help to answer that question. We will examine implementing RESTful services with WCF 3.5, using ADO.NET Data Services, and introduce the ASP.NET MVC framework.
