Last year I gave a number of presentations on ADO.NET Data Services
(formerly Astoria). This year The Next Generation User Group
seem very interested in this subject. I gave this presentation at Coventry last Monday (28th January 2008) and I’m doing it again in Oxford tomorrow night (12th February 2008) and again in Cambridge in April (probably Tuesday 29th April). This version of the presentation has been updated for the December CTP and you can download the slides here
. Here’s the abstract for the presentation:-
The emergence of Web 2.0 technologies has brought new opportunities and caused us to solve old problems in new ways. AJAX and Silverlight applications need read/write access to data and business objects without performing full page refreshes and without dumbing down the data so much we are just left with primitives. Microsoft’s answer to this problem is ADO.NET Data Services. In short ADO.NET Data Services is a data access layer for client-side technologies such as AJAX and Silverlight. This session shows how it works, how you can write ADO.NET Data Services data servers and how you can customize ADO.NET Data Services to your applications requirements.
