    Architecting a Business Intelligence Solution
    Brian Lawton of Redtail Creek Software
    Successful architectures share the characteristics of focusing their designs to support the system’s major underlying requirements. But in a Business Intelligence (BI) solution, what are those requirements and how can we architect a SQL Server-based solution to fulfill them? Those answers surprisingly involve the combination of people, process, as well as technology beyond just SQL Server. Whether your organization is just starting to implement its first BI solution or is already leveraging BI technologies across the organization, this discussion provides some field-tested, best practice approaches you can leverage to answer these questions, design or improve your architecture, and gain the most from your BI investments.

  • Tuesday, April 14, 2009 6:00 PM: Hampton Roads .NET Users Group - April Meeting
    Building and Implementing REST services using WCF and LINQ
    Abstract - With the release of the .Net 3.5 framework and Visual Studio 2008, building REST services has never been easier for the .Net developer. But what exactly is REST? Why would we use it, and where does it fit within an architecture that is service oriented? This presentation will introduce REST concepts and patterns, dive into an architectural discussion centered around ROA and SOA and will following up with building a REST service using WCF and LINQ. We will then code a client to consume the service. You will walk away from this presentation with a better understanding of REST, why it will work in many scenarios within any size company as well as how to build and expose a rest service.
