This session will be useful to anybody wanting to learn more about BackgroundMotion and how it can help you keep ahead of the game on many newer technologies.
“.NET Programming Language Pragmatics” (Andrew Peters with Joel Pobar, 15/8/2007 12:10PM-1:25PM)
"The .NET language ecosystem is vast and wide, offering lots of choice for a willing developer. Take a tour of the ecosystem, and explore the rich feature contrasts of dynamic languages like IronPython and IronRuby, functional languages like F#, and classic statically typed languages like C# and VB.NET.
After the tour, we see the best of these features in the context of Visual Basic 9, where we've added relaxed delegates, XML literals, type inference and more. We also take a peek at the future of Visual Basic (VBx) and C#."
“SQL Server 2008 for Developers” (Jeremy Boyd, 14 August 2007 5:10 PM - 6:25 PM)
There has been a strong focus on Dynamic Development and enabling scenarios such as support for business entities and synchronization. Along with new data types, DMV’s and T-SQL enhancements there is even stronger support for developers in SQL Server Katmai. In this session we will look at the new capabilities on offer and how you can make best use of them.
“Building BackgroundMotion – Scalable Web Fast by using the Composite Web Block” (Jeremy Boyd, 15 August 2007 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM)
BackgroundMotion.com is a video sharing community site and learning resource which was successfully launched earlier this year. It is also an example of a composite web application, combining both software and services together to produce an exciting result. We built BackgroundMotion using the new Composite Web block. In this session learn about what the Composite Web block offers you, how to use it, and how it will help you build scalable, testable and performant web applications, allowing you to focus on what you do best - creating exciting new web applications.
