FOLLOW UP: Public Sector Developer Conference (Seattle & Olympia, WA)
Thanks to everyone who attended. All of my demos are based on Visual Studio 2008 / .NET Framework 3.5 RTM. Here are the downloads:
NOTE: You will need to install both the Northwind (available here) and AdventureWorks (available here) sample databases for the LINQ to SQL demos to work. You may need to change connection strings based on you individual dev environment.
NOTE: The SharePoint workflow demo is a walkthrough of the Hands On Lab (HOL) from the Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Training Kit (available here). You will definitely want to check out the kit. It is chock full of FREE TRAINING in the form of slide decks and HOLs. BONUS: Recordings of the individual training kit sessions are available on channel9 here.
I was unable to answer a few questions that came up during the conferences. In Seattle, I tried to jot some of them down. Unfortunately, I forgot to save the questions in notepad:(. In Olympia, I just asked people to email me. Please feel free to email me your questions. I will hunt down answers and post in the next few days. Thanks!
SHAMELESS PLUG: Don't forget about my What's New for Web Developers in Visual Studio 2008 & the .NET Framework 3.5 webcast today:).
