Oslo sessions at PDC 2008



"Oslo": Managing Software + Services Applications

Presenter: Oliver Sharp

Increasingly, applications will consist of services that run both on-premises and in the cloud. Learn how Microsoft is simplifying the deployment and management of Software + Services applications.


Hosting Workflows and Services in "Oslo"

Presenter: Ford McKinstry

"Oslo" builds on Windows Workflow (WF) and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) to provide a feature-rich middle-tier execution and deployment environment. Learn about the architecture of "Oslo" and the features that simplify deployment, management, and troubleshooting of workflows and services.


"Oslo": Customizing and Extending the Visual Design Experience

Presenter: Florian Voss

"Oslo" provides visual tools for writing data-driven applications and services. Learn how to provide a great experience over domain-specific schemas, and explore the basic user model, data-driven viewer construction, user-defined queries, and custom commands. See how the design experience itself is an "Oslo" application and is driven by content stored in the "Oslo" repository.


A Lap around "Oslo"

Presenters: Chris Anderson, Don Box

"Oslo" is the family of new technologies that enable data-driven development and execution of services and applications. Come and learn how to capture all aspects of an application schematized in the "Oslo" repository and use "Oslo" directly to drive the execution of deployed applications.


"Oslo": The Language

Presenters: Don Box, David Langworthy

"Oslo" provides a language for creating schemas, queries, views, and values. Learn the key features of the language, including its type system, instance construction, and query. Understand supporting runtime features such as dynamic construction and compilation, SQL generation, and deployment. Learn to author content for the "Oslo" repository and understand how to programmatically construct and process the content.


"Oslo:" Repository and Schemas

Presenters: Martin Gudgin, Chris Sells

"Oslo" uses schematized data stored in the "Oslo" repository to drive the development and execution of applications and services. Tour the schemas and see how user-defined content can be created and related to them. Learn how to utilize platform schemas, such as worflow, services, and hosting. Also, learn how to extend the repository and how to use repository-extended SQL database services to support critical lifecycle capabilities such as versioning, security, and deployment.
