Server Side Applications
This month, we wrap up our series of presentations on the WAVE Launch products with a demonstration by Dean Robertson (Shared Information Solutions) of how server-side applications can take advantage of the new features within Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET 3.5 framework. Those of you who have seen Dean's previous talks know that you're in for an exciting and informative discussion!
After that, we break out the video camera and wind up with our final round of contestants for the Heroes Community Demo Competition. By presenting and recording short demos of one or more Launch 2008 products, these folks hope to be in the running for some great prizes, including a trip to Tech-Ed 2008 in Sydney, and (for the national champion) an all-expense paid trip to Tech-Ed 2009 in Los Angeles, USA! So come along and support your colleagues, and see some great demos as well!
