Windows Live Services Webcast

Last week I conducted a webcast on Windows Live Services.  The turnout was fantastic and there was great participation at the end of the webcast.  Thanks to those of you who attended!

For those of you who could not attend, you can always watch the webcast on demand here.

In the webcast, I promised you a copy of the deck that I presented.  You can find the deck in PowerPoint 2007 format here.  If you don't have PowerPoint 2007, you can get the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack that allows you to view these file types here.

In addition, I presented a few demos to show how Windows Live can be integrated into your solutions.  Most of them worked, one stubbornly didn't...  I took a look at the demo that didn't work (the Windows Live Search Console Demo) and I realized that I was targeting a beta version of the .NET framework (version 3.5) with Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 and that caused the issue.  The demo worked perfectly with Visual Studio 2005 so I'm happy to say that the demo works perfectly with that environment.

The demos themselves can be found by following the links below:

The two coding demos were taken from code found on MSDN.  The articles for these coding demos can be found below:

The really compelling thing about Live Services are how easy you can integrate these services into your applications today, using the technologies you use today.  In addition to this, the terms of use are simple and consistent across the services that are provided in the Live Platform.

  1. Hi,

    The link "Code for Demo integrating Virtual Earth in a web page" seems to be broken.
