There has been a lot of recent coverage on the participation of data technologies at Mix 07 and the announcements that we, the Data Programmability team at Microsoft, made regarding two new incubation projects that we are working on.


So, if you didn't get a chance to attend Mix, or just didn't get a chance to attend our sessions, here's a quick breakdown of Data at Mix 07.


The Data Programmability Team, including the ADO.NET and XML teams, presented 4 sessions and hosted 2 Sandbox sessions during the course of Mix 07.


·         Pablo Castro presented 2 sessions (one repeat) on Accessing Data Services in the Cloud (Project Codename 'Astoria')

·         Tim Scudder & Aaron Dunnington presented a Deep Dive session on Data Driven Experiences (LINQ to XML and Silverlight)

·         Sam Druker & Shyam Pather presented a session Rapidly Building Data Driven Web Pages with Dynamic ADO.NET (Project Codename ‘Jasper’)


To learn more about these technologies, all sessions are available to view at the above links. You can also checkout more information on Project Astoria and Project Jasper on the MSDN Data and Storage Developers Center.
