  • Wednesday, July 09, 2008 7:00 PM: SharePoint Special Interest Group - John Miller is leading a presentation on SharePoint Event Receivers.

  • Thursday, July 10, 2008 6:00 PM: RV.NUG July Meeting - Unit Testing with Visual Studio - Join us and learn how to create Unit Tests with Visual Studio. Then - just for fun (and a goofy prize) - take our sample project and see if you can discover the defective code by writing your own unit tests. Great opportunity for learning and fun!

  • Thursday, July 10, 2008 6:30 PM: Richmond .NET User Group July Meeting - Kevin Hazzard on Web Services and Silverlight. Silverlight is a client-side technology. So it’s not really a part of your SOA strategy, right? You may want to think twice about that. SOAP and WSDL support are coming to the web desktop via Silverlight. And Silverlight has good client support for REST+ JSON/POX and RSS/ATOM-based web services, too. During this discussion, we’ll dive into data serialization, security and cross-domain access policy capabilities inside Silverlight 2 Beta 2. We also talk about the nuances and pitfalls of provisioning your web services for an Internet audience. This presentation will be heavy on coding, demonstration and interactive discussion.
