While Tom is enjoying his well-deserved holidays I'm happy to announce that we finished the agenda and speakers for the MSDN Event on .NET Framework 3.0 Development. This event will take place in Kinepolis, Brussels on September 25.

MSDN Event: .NET Framework 3.0

On this event you will get a full immersion of the .NET Framework 3.0, the upcoming managed-code programming model which builds on and extends the .NET Framework. The new version of the Framework offers you both practical solutions to today's software challenges and new opportunities to create software and services not possible now.
It enables you, as a developer or designer, to quickly create new applications and experiences that are more reliable and secure, visually stunning, smarter about information management, better connected, and more collaborative.

The agenda consist of 1 track with 5 different sessions. Main topics that will be covered will be:

  • Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
    • Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF): Introduction or Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF): Creating Windows and Web Applications with WPF
  • Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)
    • Windows Communication Foundation (WCF): Introduction or Let's Communicate - Using Windows Communication Foundation(WCF) in .NET Applications
  • Windows Workflow Foundation (WF)
    •  Windows Workflow Foundation (WF): Introduction or Windows Workflow Foundation (WF): Getting Comprehensive Workflow Support in your Applications
  • Windows CardSpace
    • Windows CardSpace: Introduction
  • and how these technologies fit together when building stateful services
    • "Stateful Services: WF and WCF Together At Last"

Detailed abstracts of the sessions can be found here

On the main agenda you will be able to vote for the sessions that you would like to see delivered by the speakers at the event. The sessions having the most votes will be selected and presented at the event.
