Come see how Windows Vista is fundamentally different from earlier versions of Windows, Windows Vista introduces development advances that help developers create next-generation applications that take full advantage of Windows Vista, including:

·        WinFX: A managed-code programming model

·        Windows Presentation Foundation: The Microsoft unified presentation subsystem for Windows

·        Windows Workflow Foundation

·        Windows Communication Foundation: The next-generation Web services technology by Microsoft

The session will pay particular attention to a technology called Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). WPF introduces significant changes such as being able to take advantage your video card’s power and  being able to be written in a simple XML based mark up language called XAML.  Charles Sterling will walk through the this new runtime, the mark up language XAML and the new development paradigms being introduce like coding into panels that can automatically flow your controls, animations and even video demo’s will be done from both Visual Studio 2005 and Sparkle

Subject: Code Camp Oz II: Request for Speakers!

 

Hey Chuck,

Its not exactly coastal, but do you think we can convince you to come down to Wagga Wagga again this year?

It's time to get the speakers and presentations lined up for Code Camp Oz - Return to Wagga. If you are keen to present this year, please send an email to speakers@codecampoz.com with details. The main categories of presentations we're after is listed below but if you have anything that you think others would love that doesn't quite fit these, let us know anyway.

  • Developer Productivity; we are particular interested in TFS, unit testing, source code management, and sessions on agile or other development methodologies. We would also like to see some mobility sessions offered.
  • Server Application Development; we are particularly interested in sessions on SQL Server, BizTalk, and SharePoint.
  • The Business of Software Development; we are particularly interested in consulting advice, project management, industry accreditation and certification discussions and debates.
  • Futures; we are particular interested in sessions on WPF, WCF, WWF, Sparkle and the Expressions suite of tools, IIS 7.0 and Windows Vista.

There are a couple of important notes:

  • As this is a free event, speakers (and all attendees) need to arrange their own transport and accomodation for the event.
  • As we may try to record this event for those who can’t make it, speakers need to be OK for their sessions to be recorded.
  • Sessions must fit in a fifty five (55) minute window. Sessions are scheduled at one (1) hour intervals. please make sure you are succinct in what you are presenting.

Thats all folks! Get those submissions to us as fast as possible so Greg and I will start putting together the final schedule. Please note that as the length of the event is limited we won’t be able to accept all submissions.
