DevCares Lives on in Q4!!

DevCares, delivered and hosted quarterly by our Partners is designed to keep you up to date on the cutting-edge technologies that provide the fastest means for building and deploying state-of-the-art applications. DevCares is a FREE half-day technical training series created by Developers for Developers! We’ll address the needs and issues of developers today and show you how to make a real difference in the way that you work!

Session 1: Power of Designers in Visual Studio 2008
In this session we will take a look at one of Visual Studio’s greatest strengths: the built-in designers. These powerful tools enable us to quickly create meaningful visual representations of many technologies, and allow us to quickly put these technologies to work within our applications. Join us as we explore the Object-Relational Modeler (LINQ-to-SQL), Windows Presentation Foundation Designer (WPF), Windows Workflow Foundation Designer (WF), and the Class Diagram Designer in our flagship product. Once you understand the power and flexibility these tools offer, you will certainly be able to put them to use every day as you tackle challenges with your applications.

Session 2: Reach Your Data with SQL Server 2008
Join us as we look at Microsoft SQL Server 2008 as a productive data platform. We'll use Contoso (Container Overseas Shipping Operation) LTD as our scenario customer while we explore the features that make SQL Server 2008 this platform. Contoso is a shipping company; they arrange the shipping of all kinds of items around the globe, from small individual items to large manufactured items. In this session, we look at how Contoso LTD can increase methods of accessing data without the need for complex connections and filters on firewalls. We concentrate on Service Broker and ADO.NET Data Services in this session. We’ll also see how the FILESTREAM attribute and Remote BLOB Store API features in SQL Server 2008 provide solutions for managing unstructured data. We cover the differences from large unstructured data storage in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and then explore the new SQL Server 2008 features in detail, while explaining how to implement them.
