"Enterprise Library 3.0 – What’s New?" Webcast on tomorrow, March 27th

We're currently putting the final coat of polish onto Enterprise Library 3.0, and we should have the release out the door right at the start of April. But we wanted to get a head start on the launch party with our first EntLib 3.0 webcast, which is on tomorrow, March 27th at 10am PDT / 17:00 UTC. In this presentation, Ed and I will give an overview of all of the cool new features in this release, including the Validation Application Block, Policy Injection Application Block, Application Block Software Factory and more.

If the webcast is on at a convenient time for you, please register now to watch it live. The best thing about watching it live is you can ask questions in real time using Live Meeting. If the time doesn't work out, don't stress - as is always the case you'll be able to watch on-demand from the next day onwards. When we release Enterprise Library 3.0 we'll make the Powerpoint presentation from the webcast available on MSDN, should you wish to present the same content in your organization or user group.

See you tomorrow!

    The Application Block Software Factory is great, cant wait for a bit more documentation on it though. The links to the documentation didnt seem to work in the Feb release. A few samples wouldnt go astray either. I was thinking of just CarEngineProvider type samples which require no other technology knowledge assumptions and just let us focus on getting our heads around the various classes involved in this. Is there much of this sort of thing in the 3.0 release?

    Ohh – and great work getting something like this into production spot on your release date – its great having access to all the CTP releases too. These definately help developers / architects get a broard feel for a toolset prior to its release.

  3. Take notice , there’s an Enterprise Library 3.0 Webcast on March 27 at 10am PDT / 17:00 UTC . So due

    Roughly whats made it into the CTP? It’d make it more interesting to watch than not to know…

  5. Please put enterprise libary 3.0 features in your blog. Can enterprise lirbary 3.0 work with .net framework 2.0???
