Geekette's Blogette Trying to keep up with technology

Thanks to everyone that came out for the MidAtlantic MSDN Roadshow in Roanoke in September.  Your attendance and enthusiasm were noticed.  I am happy to share that the Roadshow is returning for the afternoon on December 8th to the Roanoke Higher Education Center (it's a really nice venue too!) 

Registration is required - do it NOW and do it HEREOh, and be sure and share this with a friend or two or three.  We'd like to surpass our attendance last time.

G. Andrew Duthie (@devhammer) and crew return for the 4th quarter edition with the following:

Data Access and Network Options in Silverlight

Wondering about the most effective way of getting data into your Silvelright application? Trying to sort out the different options available? Then this session is for you. We will provide an overview of the different networking and data access techniques available in Silverlight. We’ll show examples of using each of these technologies, and along the way, we’ll also look at the role these technologies can play in other .NET applications, as well as look at the Sample Data feature in Expression Blend 3, and how to transition from Sample Data to production data in your applications.

What’s new in Windows 7 for Developers

Windows 7 has many improvements in both performance and user interface that you can take advantage of in your applications.  This session will give an overview of how to code in those features users will expect such as Libraries, the new Taskbar, and Jump Lists.  We will also look at taking advantage of several performance improvements like Trigger Start services and the new Windows Troubleshooter.  Finally, we will look at adding some of the new interface options available such as Multi-Touch and the Ribbon Menu to your existing applications.
