MSDN Webcast: Multi-Device Development Is Here (Level 200)

Wednesday, January 05, 2005 - 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Pacific Time

Martin Schray, Academic Developer Evangelist, Microsoft Corporation

Software designers have been urged to break applications into multiple tiers as in three-tier (UI, application logic and data) or n-tier development in order to reduce the coupling between major application sub-systems. Many application designers assume there will always be a single UI tier. Is this an outdated assumption since applications like Microsoft Outlook run on multiple devices such as desktops, Microsoft Windows Mobile-based PocketPCs, SmartPhones and Web browsers? What are the implications for designing multi-device applications? Can code be reused across devices? Martin Schray will share his experiences developing two applications that run on the desktop, PocketPC and SmartPhone using Web services.

MSDN Webcast: Essential ASP.NET: A Webcast Series for the Web Developer (Part 9 of 15): Form Validation in ASP.NET (Level 200)

Tuesday, January 25, 2005 - 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Pacific Time

Fritz Onion, Partner, Pluralsight, LLC, Pluralsight

Microsoft ASP.NET provides a set of validation controls, which make it simple to add even sophisticated validation to any page. These validation controls are smart enough to emit javascript for client-side validation when the client browser is capable, or to keep the validation on the server for down-level browsers. This talk covers the validation control architecture and the details of the six validation controls. This is the ninth presentation in the 15-part Essential ASP.NET- A Webcast Series for the Web Developer.

MSDN Webcast: If You Want Something Done Right, Then Let Microsoft Office Do It For You (Level 300)

Tuesday, January 25, 2005 - 2:00 PM-3:00 PM Pacific Time

Greg Stemp, Programming Writer, Microsoft Corp.

Script writers often spend hours tweaking and polishing their code, trying – often in vain – to get output that looks just right, to create some sort of graphical representation of their data, to create a finished report that won’t embarrass them when it ends up on their manager’s desk. The truth is, if you’re hoping to create something very cool and very professional-looking, plain vanilla VBScript typically won’t do it. But that’s OK: if it’s too hard to create a graph using plain old VBScript, then why not let Microsoft Excel create that graph for you? In this webcast, the Microsoft Scripting Guys will introduce you to the Microsoft Office object model, and show you how you can harness the power of applications such as Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel to create powerful system administration scripts you never dreamed you’d be able to create.

MSDN Webcast: SwA Between BEA and.NET Using SOAP Extensions (Level 300)

Wednesday, January 26, 2005 - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Pacific Time

Michelle Leroux Bustamante, Principal Software Architect of IDesign, Microsoft Regional Director, BEA Technical Director, IDesign

Web Services Enhancements (WSE) 2.0 is an extension to the .NET Framework that enables interoperable messaging with other platforms. Developers use WSE to secure Web services using existing and emerging standards like OASIS WS-Security, WS-SecureConversation, WS-Trust, and WS-SecurityPolicy. Although tools like WSE promise to eventually remove the need to know any WS* XML, implementing these standards today remains a challenge to developers who don't grok the XML. This webcast, intended for application architects, will show how to secure Web services with WSE, and how to configure settings to properly interoperate with third-party Java development platforms such as BEA's WebLogic and Apache Axis.
