There is one additional chalk-talk that is not in the previous list. In addition to chalk talks that dive deep into technical areas, we’ve got one from a customer who has just wrapped up a project that deployed Workflow. Marc has been working with them on this, and they’re going to talk about what they’ve done. This is a great chance to hear about WinFX from someone who has already deployed it in their production environment. The details are below:
Abstract: Credit Suisse Group is a leading global financial services company, providing clients with investment banking, private banking and asset management services worldwide. Like in most enterprises, Credit Suisse provided their developers with physical machines for development. Issues such as combination of authorization, physical delivery times and compliance-related workflows led to slow development timeframes. Their R&D group built an extremely extensible self-service virtual-machine provisioning system that enables software developers in a fraction of the time to easily, securely and rapidly provision on-demand disposable workstations, servers, and multi-tier environments. Credit Suisse will exponentially increase software developer productivity, drastically lower IT costs and ensure compliancy with continuously stringent regulatory requirements. The solution uses Windows Workflow Foundation, Windows Communication Foundation, and Virtual Server.
Speaker: Leslie Muller (Architect – Credit Suisse Global R&D)
Location: Thursday 6/15/2006 from 10:15-11:30 in Theatre 2.
