A few short months after my EU tour (see previous blog post) I will be delivering a variation of my technology roadmap (once again, affectionately known as the technology avalanche) at the PDC in November 2009. You can bet even in that two short months I will have updated the seminar once again, to better reflect the latest state of the various technologies I will discuss. The goal of this workshop at the PDC will be to prepare you for the rest of PDC - get you up to speed with the various technologies from platform releases to languages, for data access, windows and web development, for middle-tier development, for security and identity related, and for cloud computing. Lots to cover, lots of fun to be had discussing the avalanche! You must join me!
Here are the details!
Developers increasingly have more on their mind and on their plate. Though Visual Studio and the .NET Framework both provide tools that yield an overall increase in productivity during the development cycle, the avalanche of technologies that build upon these foundations can seem overwhelming if not insurmountable at times. The goal of this workshop is to help you understand the value proposition of each technology and to prepare yourself to make the most of the rest of PDC. We’ll help you make sense of language and platform trends, data access tier advances, technologies for windows client and web application development, the middle tier evolution with WCF and workflow, identity platforms and technologies, and cloud computing.
