Sneak Peek of the Next MSDN Flash Newsletter


Next week my focus turns to an eight city series of MSDN Unplugged events to help web developers get ready for the upcoming release of Silverlight 2 and prepare for what you will see announced at PDC in late October.

The session is titled Get Ready for Cloud-Based Services, IE8 & Silverlight 2. I will discuss briefly readiness and enhancements with Internet Explorer 8. I will introduce Silverlight 2 and WPF 3.5 for developers focused on service enabled rich client development and then lead into a discussion on cloud based services including WCF, REST and JSON.

Changing tact with the dust clearing on another successful Tech.Ed conference in Auckland we have a wealth of resources online for your enjoyment. As discussed in the previous MSDN Flash Tech.Ed live is jam packed with content for developers including:

WEB304 Web Futures – The next 18 months

WEB309 Silverlight 2 for Developers

WEB311 Designing Compelling User Experiences with Expression Studio 2

SEC305 Virtualisation and Security – What does it mean for me?

Also last week Matt Heller (from the IE team) and I embarked on a short 3 city trip around New Zealand to present 17 sessions to 750 web developers on the new Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2. If you were unable to make one of the presentations a video of the Auckland Unplugged session is available online.

See you on the road!
