The Microsoft Azure Services Platform includes not one but two (arguably three) ways of storing your data. In this session we will look at the implications of Windows Azure Storage and SQL Data Services on how we will store data when we build applications deployed in the Cloud. We will cover “code near” vs “code far”, relational vs none relational, blobs, queues and more


What impact will Entity Framework and Entity Data Model have on application architecture - Thu 1st Oct, 11:30am
The Entity Framework is a strategic technology from Microsoft. In version 1 the focus was on helping developers use an ORM within their application and to expose data as RESTful Web Services, but version 2 extends this to include scenarios such as reporting. In this session we will look at what is the impact, both good and bad, of embracing an ORM technology and specifically, the impact when that technology is the ADO.NET Entity Framework.
