SQL Azure Sessions at PDC 2010

[This article was contributed by the SQL Azure team.]

The session list for
the sold out PDC 2010 two day conference in Redmond have been posted here.  The SQL
Azure sessions announced on the PDC 2010 web site are listed below.

Building Offline Applications using the Sync Framework and SQL Azure

Nina Hu

In this session you will learn how to build a client
application that operates against locally stored data and uses synchronization
to keep up-to-date with a SQL Azure database. See how Sync Framework can be
used to build caching and offline capabilities into your client application,
making your users productive when disconnected and making your user experience
more compelling even when a connection is available. See how to develop offline
applications for Windows Phone 7 and Silverlight, plus how the services support
any other client platform, such as iPhone and HTML5 applications, using the
open web-based sync protocol.

Building Scale-Out Database Solutions on SQL Azure

Lev Novik

SQL Azure provides an information platform that you can
easily provision, configure, and use to power your cloud applications. In this
session we will explore the patterns and practices that help you develop and deploy
applications that can exploit the full power of the elastic, highly available,
and scalable SQL Azure Database service. The talk will detail modern scalable
application design techniques such as sharding and horizontal partitioning and
dive into future enhancements to SQL Azure Databases.
