Looking forward to heading to New Orleans this weekend and doing an all day Agile
pre-con on Sunday with Joel Semeniuk.
There is still space to sign up, here is the info to look for:
PRC07 | The Agile Methodology Demystified: Implementing Agile in Your Organization
Track: Development Practices
Wednesday afternoon I will also be presenting a breakout session
on OData:. Below is the official write-up, however, I will be showing first how to
build an OData service (first via Astoria or *.Data Services, and then with other
methods such as SQL Azure, etc) and then how to consume the service via several different
technologies including ASP.NET, Silverlight, PowerPivot, and more. I’ll show some
non-Microsoft technology along the way. I’m thinking no slides, just code for this
DEV303 | Building
RESTful Applications with the Open Data Protocol
Track: Developer Tools, Languages & Frameworks
Level: 300 - Advanced
Applications today are expected to expose their data and consume data-centric services
via REST. In this session we discuss what REST is and have an overview of Windows
Communication Foundation (WCF) Data Services and see how we can REST enable your data
using the Open Data Protocol (OData). Then we cover how to leverage existing skills
related to Microsoft Visual Studio, LINQ and data access to customize the behavior,
control-flow, security model and experience of your data service. We then see how
to enable data-binding to traditional ASP.NET controls as well as Microsoft Silverlight
and Microsoft PowerPivot for Microsoft Excel 2010. We then turn to consuming SharePoint
and other OData-based applications in Microsoft .NET as well as from a non-Microsoft
client. This is a very demo intensive session.
I have some other MVP booth duties and some ask the experts hours, but when I am free,
I will be at the Telerik booth. We’ll have a
large staff at TechEd this year!
See you there.
