Mitch and Greg have done an incredible job and have already managed to fill the entire code camp agenda!
Since there were so many great topics still coming and something Greg Low really wanted to do was have a beginning/introductory track running at the same time and I have offered to schedule these “introductory” sessions. (see below)
So far I have had 5 submissions – if there is something you want to see or present please send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The plan is to close the submissions for this track end of week next week.
This introductory session will start with an Overview of Windows Vista and show 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

Topics covered will be getting your user group web site up and running (Philip Beadle), how to get your web site listed in the MSDN Flash and on the Microsoft Web Site, what is Ineta and what can it do for you.
Specifically the implications and an introduction to coding: custom schemas (==adding your own metadata), storage watchers, queries and synchronization. Chris may be able to get some collateral (CTPs etc.) from his buddies in Redmond.
