Dani beat me to the punch on announcing our next set of MSDN Roadshow stops, so I’m just going to steal his blog post on the topic:

I am happy to announce the next Mid Atlantic Tour dates and sessions. As always, we take your feedback very seriously. One of the feedback was to lessen the number of topic we present at our event and to go a be more deeper into the topic we cover. Bellow are the topics and cities we will be visiting for this tour. I hope to see everyone there. Please invite a friend. They will take you later :-).

Data Access and Network Options in Silverlight

Wondering about the most effective way of getting data into your Silvelright application? Trying to sort out the different options available? Then this session is for you. We will provide an overview of the different networking and data access techniques available in Silverlight. We’ll show examples of using each of these technologies, and along the way, we’ll also look at the role these technologies can play in other .NET applications, as well as look at the Sample Data feature in Expression Blend 3, and how to transition from Sample Data to production data in your applications.

What’s new in Windows 7 for Developers

Windows 7 has many improvements in both performance and user interface that you can take advantage of in your applications.  This session will give an overview of how to code in those features users will expect such as Libraries, the new Taskbar, and Jump Lists.  We will also look at taking advantage of several performance improvements like Trigger Start services and the new Windows Troubleshooter.  Finally, we will look at adding some of the new interface options available such as Multi-Touch and the Ribbon Menu to your existing applications.
