DEVELOPER DINNER: Building Business-Focused Applications Using Silverlight 2 and Beyond


IMPORTANT NOTE: This developer dinner will not be at a Microsoft facility.  Please make sure you take note of this.

Thursday, January 15, 2009 6:00 PM – Thursday, January 15, 2009 8:00 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
Welcome Time: 5:30 PM

Reston Community Center – Lake Anne

1609-A Washington Plaza
Jo Anne Rose Gallery Reston Virginia 20190
United States

Background:

Business-focused applications, sometimes referred to as Line Of Business (LOB) applications, are almost universally about working with data in some shape or form.  At it’s a heart, a business app needs:

  • A way to move data between tiers
  • A way to shape data (sort, filter, etc.)
  • A way to bind & display data
  • A way to soundly apply business logic

What you will learn:

In this session, we’ll start off by discussing approaches to building this kind of functionality TODAY using Silverlight 2.  Next, we will give you a peek into how a future version of Silverlight will make building these applications even easier.  You will learn about an exciting new technology that is all about making business applications for RIA (Rich Internet Applications) much easier to build.  You will hear how we’ve made n-tier application development as simple as traditional 2-tier, provided application level solutions to developers, and how we’re doing all of this with the same .NET platform and tools on both the client and server.

Who should come:

This is an opportunity to learn techniques to build apps today and get ahead of the curve before the next version of Silverlight is released.  If you are someone that builds, architects, or manages development teams building Web Applications, this presentation is for you.

    Alvin,

    I just tried the links and they work.  Can you try again?  If you still have issues, I can look into what’s going on.  Thanks.

    Still can’t see the event details or register. Same error. Do you know if anyone else not associated with the event has been able to register?

  7. Marc says:

    I tried it again.  Now I am experiencing the same issue.  I will investigate and follow up.

  8. Marc says:

    I’m investigating now.  Hopefully we can get the registration issue resolved.  I will report back what I find.  

    However, feel free to just show up if the registration system keeps behaving this way.
