Entries for April 2011

Begin 2011 heeft Microsoft de eerste beta van VS LightSwitch met Go-Live licentie gelanceerd, een nieuw product in de Visual Studio familie, waarmee razendsnel zowel web- als desktop SilverLight "Line of Business" applicaties kunnen worden gemaakt. Hoewel de doelgroep van VS LightSwitch niet primair bestaat uit hard-core .net developers, zal het ook voor deze groep zeker waardevol kunnen zijn om de mogelijkheden en beperkingen van LightSwitch te leren kennen.

Only a few days left before DevDays11 will start in The Netherlands, and while a large part of my schedule is fixed already I decided to run through the agenda and pick a few sessions anyway.

My main interest during DevDays will be Visual Studio LightSwitch, as you will be able to find me most of the time - at least in between sessions - in the Ask The Experts area at the VS LightSwitch boot. So naturally I highly recommend the sessions Beth Massi will be giving on the topic. She's doing 4 of them, one of which during geeknight, so I'm sure you'll be able to catch one.

On april 28th DevDays my highlight will probably be:

9:15 The KeyNote. Keynotes are always a blast.
11:05 Not sure yet, but I might just try and catch the Windows Phone 7 Mango session by Ben Riga.
13:30 Going for the session on REST with WCF by Glenn Block, since I already know a bit about LightSwitch.This timeslot also features Beth's first session on LightSwitch. If you're new to LightSwitch, check it out.
15:05 That'll probably be Mark Miller on UI. It's been a while since I've seen him speak.
16:30 I'll probably try and learn something about Azure this timeslot. But then again I might also pick up on Beth's second appearance on LightSwitch, since we might get questions about that on the boot.

Geek Night night is not something you should plan for, so we'll just see what happens.

9:15 No possible way of predicting how things will look during the first session after Geek Night. So I decided not to plan anything here.
10:50 Only one possible option: Beth Massi on Advanced LightSwitch Techniques. That'll be awesome!
13:15 This will be a hard one. Of course there's Mathijs on WP7 Push Notifications, but there's also Ingo Rammer on Advanced Debuggin in VS2010 which will probably be very useful too.

For the remainder on the conference I actually expect to be busy on the ATE stand for LightSwitch. And I'm looking forward to it too!

Hope to meet you there
